The Teacher Studio: Learning, Thinking, Creating: It's a Real Life Math Linky! I was thinking hard about what types of real life math experiences I've had over the last month, and there sure have been a lot!
The one, however, that I am dealing with right now is all the leftover Halloween candy I keep shoving in my face. This got me to thinking about how many trick-or-treaters we had this year compared to last year and why I ended up with so much extra candy. When I went shopping for my candy this year, I vaguely remembered thinking that we had about 60 trick-or-treaters the year before. I always let the kids pick two pieces of candy, so I figured I needed about 120 pieces of candy plus the extra that my family needs to eat to give us the energy to open the door all those times all night long. Knowing myself as I do, I decided not to buy any candy until the night before Halloween. I flipped over the first bag to see how many candy bars were in it, and did a little mental math. I saw two bars per serving--approximately 7 servings--so I figured about 21 candy bars. 4 worksheets with real world problems by Virginia Conrad.

Miss Giraffe's Class: Adding with 10 and a single digit number. Making a 10 to Add is a great math strategy to help students mentally add bigger numbers.
It's a skill I picked up somewhere along the way in elementary school and have used on a daily basis ever since. I never realized I was composing and decomposing numbers but I've done it all my life and it's so helpful! That being said, holy moly is it a hard concept for some kids to grasp! If you can guide them there, though, I think it's a great mental math strategy for them to have in their toolkit. So I'm going to try to explain, step by step, how to get them there. :) 1) Master all facts within 10, especially making 10 I wrote a huge blog post recently with a ton of ideas and resources for how to build students' fact fluency. 2) Adding to 10 The next step is that students need to learn how to add one digit numbers to 10. This step is WAY easier because students are pretty quick to realize that they just replace the 0 with the number. 3) Adding 9 (moving 1 to make 10) Woohoo!
