Number Operation

:

Operational Relationships

Use properties of operations as strategies for solving arithmetic problems.

Supporting targets:
1:

Identify the Associative Property of Addition.

2:

Understand that the associative property is about grouping factors in an addition equation without changing the sum.

3:

Although computation often is necessary to solve in the order given, with addition, addends can be computed in an order that produces more “friendly” numbers.

Vocabulary:

Addend, Sum, Associative Property of Addition, Group

Activities:

  • reviewed the Associative Property of Addition, understanding that in an addition sentence of 3 or more addends, addends can be grouped in any order using parentheses and will not change the sum.
  • solved basic addition expressions and linked the two with equal sums.
  • deconstructed the original addition 2-addend sentences given into 3 addends in such a way that both 2-addend equations used the same addends.
  • in each new equation, used the Associative Property of Addition to group the addends in different ways.

Challenge Problem:

Solve and pair up the addition sentences with equal sums. Use the Associative Property of Addition so to create new addition sentences with 3 addends and use parentheses to group the different addends.

Challenge Data:

• 4+8
• 22+14
• 10+7
• 17+19
• 9+15
• 2+10
• 25+17
• 11+13
• 5+12
• 31+11

Guiding Questions:
  • Let's take one "clue" (an addend) from each of the addition sentences. Should we use the greater or lesser addend? (The lesser of the addends is used)
  • Now let's take another clue from the equation with the matching sum. Which addend should we use?
  • Okay, now we have to figure out what the missing number is. How much more do we need to equal the original sum?
Challenge Answer:

Possible solutions:
• 4 + 8 = 4 + (2 + 6); 2 + 10= 2 + (4 + 6)
• 10 + 7 = (5 + 5) + 7; 5 + 12 = 5 + (5 + 7)
• 11 + 13 = 11 + (9 + 4); 9 + 15 = 9 + (11 + 4)
• 25 + 17 = (11 + 14) + 17; 31 + 11 = (14 + 17) + 11
• 17 + 19 = 17 + (14 + 5); 22 + 14 = (17 + 5) + 14
