Lesson objective: Add three addends by grouping known facts such as tens or doubles to help solve problems more efficiently.

This lesson helps to build fluency with addition of three addends. A ten frame is used here because it supports the concept of making a ten and adding a value to ten. This work develops students' understanding that when we are adding numbers, it doesn't matter how they are grouped.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 8 (Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning) as they use facts they already know in order to make adding three numbers more efficient.

Key vocabulary:

• addend: one of the numbers in an indicated sum of two or more numbers (e.g., 4 + 3 + 1 = 8; 4, 3, and 1 are addends)

• double fact: an addition equation in which each addend is the same
• equation: a mathematical sentence stating that two expressions are equal

• group: a number of people or objects that are assembled together or that have some unifying relationship
• known fact: an equation that can be automatically and correctly stated without counting
• sum: the result when two or more quantities are added
• ten fact: an addition equation with two addends that total or equal ten

Special materials needed:

• double ten frames
• multi-colored counters
