    Go Math!: 

    Chapter 1: Addition and Subtraction Within 1,000

    Students will:

    • Identify and describe whole-number patterns
    • Round 2- and 3-digit numbers to the nearest hundred
    • Use compatible numbers and rounding to estimate sums and differences
    • Use the Commutative or Associative Properties of Addition
    • Add and subtract 3-digit numbers using break apart and place value
    • Solve addition and subtraction problems by using the strategy draw a diagram


    Common Core Learning Standards:

    3.OA.D.8 - Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

    3.OA.D.9 - Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.

    3.NBT.A.1 - Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.

    3.NBT.A.2 - Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
