Our Addition Patterns lesson plan presents addition patterns as a way to mentally solve addition problems with large numbers. The lesson specifically focuses on problems with addends that have the same number of zeros in each number. Several examples are provided to assist with students’ understanding. Students are asked to spin an interactive spinner to generate random practice problems and are also asked to demonstrate their understanding by solving given problems.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to recognize an addition pattern in relation to place value.
