What's

**new**in math?

In this unit, students will identify pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters by their image, name, or value. Students will add one cent to the value of any coin and count on using pennies from any coin.

__Identifying and Comparing Values of Coins__In this unit, students will identify pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters by their image, name, or value. Students will add one cent to the value of any coin and count on using pennies from any coin.

**Common Core Focus:**

*** Name a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.**

* Identify the value of a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.

* Add one cent to any given coin.

* Count on using pennies from any single coin.

* Identify the value of a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter.

* Add one cent to any given coin.

* Count on using pennies from any single coin.

__Introducing Time, Measurement, and Data__

In this unit, students read graphs and answer questions about the data. They measure objects with non-standard units and compare the length of two objects by using a third object. They read and write time to the hour.

Addition and Subtraction within 10

The children are learning strategies to help them solve addition and subtraction problems within 10. By the end of first grade, children should be able solve all problems within 10 in three seconds a problem. In order to help the children learn how to do this, the problems are broken down in strategies. You may have hear your child use the words: "ten friend" , "double", or "counting on". Below is a description of each strategy the children are learning:

Count on 1, 2, 3:

When adding two numbers, put the larger number in your head and count on 1, 2, or 3. You may have to change the order of the addends to do this. 6+3=(6... 7, 8, 9), 2+7=(7...8,9)

Count Back 1, 2, 3:

Put the whole in your head and count back. 9-2= (9...8,7)

Count On "Think Addition" :

When subtracting and the numbers are close start with the small number and count on to the large number to get the difference.. 9-7= (7...8,9 your answer is 2)

Doubles:

Adding a number to itself. 2+2=, 4+4=, also knowing if 4+4=8, then 8-4=4.

Near Doubles or Doubles +1:

When adding two numbers that are one apart (or number neighbors) double the small number and add one to the answer. 4+3=, double the 3 and add 1 to the answer. 3+3=6, so 4+3=7.

Ten Friends:

Two numbers when added together equal 10. 4+6=10, 8+2=10

Also knowing when 10 is the whole and you take away a part, the missing part is the ten friend. 10-7=3.

Below are addition and subtraction strategy flashcards. Some strategies will be introduced as we move on in the year. Feel free to copy at your convenience!
