Adding with Whole Tens

This is a complete lesson for 1st or 2nd grade about adding a two-digit number and a multiple of ten, such as 58 + 30. Students first use a visual model for tens and ones to add. Then the lesson explains a strategy for doing such sums: break the 2-digit number into parts before adding. The lesson has many exercises, word problems, a pattern exercise, and a fun puzzle.


1. The numbers are shown with ten-sticks and one-dots. Write the sums.

    How much did Gwen pay?

    23 + _____ = 93

10. Add 10, 20, 30, or 40. In the box below the number, write “E” if the number is even,
      and “O”, if the number is odd. What do you notice?

+ 10   

12   22 
E E

+  20

19  
O  

+ 30   

32   
   

+ 40

How many different solutions can you find for this puzzle?  
Find at least two. All numbers are whole tens.
 
 
      +   +     = 70            +     +     = 70
 +     +     +   +     +     + 
      +   +     = 100          +     +     = 100
 +     +     +   +     +     + 
    +   +     = 70     +     +     = 70
