  1. Watch BOTH of the videos below.  They are about 4 minutes each.  You will find that one of the strategies makes more sense to you.  Some of your brains will “get it” using number lines, and others will “get it” using the counters.  The purpose of having you watch both videos is so you can decide the strategy that makes the most sense to you.

  3. If you are ready to roll, go ahead and complete your assignment.  If you want to work through a couple of problems with me, then choose the strategy that you prefer and we can work through the first few problems on your assignment together.  If you prefer using a number line, you may want to print this to help you solve the problems.

Take a picture of your assignment and email it to me.  Make sure I can read it, because I am going to check it.  I will reply to your email and let you know if you are on the right track or if you need to try again.
