Module 2: Addition and Subtraction of Length Units

Students will...…

• connect measurement with physical units
• apply concepts to create unit rulers
• measure and compare length
• solve addition and subtraction word problems using the ruler as a number line

Module 3: Place Value, Counting, and Comparison of Numbers to 1,000

Students will...…

• form base ten units of a ten, a hundred, and a thousand
• understand place value units of one, ten, and a hundred
• write three-digit numbers in unit, standard, expanded, and word forms

Common Core Learning Standards:

2.MD.A.1 - Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.

2.MD.A.2 - Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.

2.MD.A.3 - Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.

2.MD.A.4 - Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.

2.MD.B.5 - Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.

2.MD.B.6 - Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2, ..., and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number line diagram.

2.NBT.A.1- Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones.

2.NBT.A.2 - Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s.

2.NBT.A.3 - Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.

2.NBT.A.4 - Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

2.NBT.B.8 - Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100-900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100-900.
