The purpose of this lesson is for students to add a two-digit number and a multiple of 10.
In previous lessons, students added and subtracted multiples of 10 from other multiples of 10. In this lesson, students reason about the value of expressions where both addends are two-digit numbers; one addend is a multiple of 10 and the other is not. Students use and explain methods that make sense to them and show what they understand about what the two digits in a two-digit number represent (MP3, MP7).
