CONTENT OF THE LESSON

LESSON ONE – INTRODUCTORY ACTIVITIES

REVISION ON SUBTRACTION OF 2 DIGIT WHOLE NUMBERS (10 minutes)

Teacher’s/Pupil’s Activities – Guides pupils on oral subtraction using subtraction cards. Flash the subtraction cards to the pupils and let them respond by giving correct answers to questions such as 5 – 8, 7 – 4, 6 – 5, etc. contained in addition cards.

Quick Guide and Evaluation on two digit numbers –

1. 2 5 – 1 1

2. 3 6 – 2 2

Solutions 1 – Expanded Method

2 5 =    20 + 5

– 1 1 = – (10 + 1)

_______________________________

1 4 = 10 + 4

_______________________________

Therefore, 2 5 – 1 1 = 1 4

Solutions 2

3 6 =    30 + 6

– 2 2 = – (20 + 2)

_______________________________

1 4 =  10 + 4

_______________________________

Therefore, 3 6 – 2 2 = 1 4

Be sure that the pupils arrange each digit of the numbers correctly. Allow simple counting because of individual difference.

Quick Assessment

Find the answers to these subtraction problems using the expanded form.

1. 5 5 – 3 4

2. 7 6 – 1 2

ADDITION OF 3 DIGIT WHOLE NUMBERS (10 minutes)

Teacher’s/Pupil’s Activities – Guides the pupils to add 3 – digit numbers using expanded method.

Working Examples

1. 3 2 5 – 1 1 1

2. 5 2 5 – 3 2 5

Solution 1 – Expanded Method

3 2 5 =     300 + 20 + 5

– 1 1 1 = – (100 + 10 + 1)

_________________________________

2 1 4 =     200 + 10 + 4

_________________________________

Solution 2 – Expanded Method

5 2 5 =    500 + 20 + 5

– 3 2 5 = – (300 + 20 + 5)

_________________________________

2 0 0 =     200 + 00 + 0
