Lesson 20
Make TwoDigit Numbers in Different Ways
Lesson Purpose
The purpose of this lesson is for students to represent twodigit numbers in different ways and identify twodigit numbers represented with different amounts of tens and ones.
Lesson Narrative
In the previous lesson, students explored representing a twodigit number with tens and ones. The purpose of this lesson is for students to represent twodigit numbers with tens and ones in different ways and identify twodigit numbers when they are represented with different combinations of tens and ones. As students reason about different ways to compose or decompose tens, they look for and make use of the baseten structure of twodigit numbers (MP7). In the first activity, students represent 94 with tens and ones in as many ways as they can and discuss how they know that they have found all of the ways. In the second activity, students determine how many connecting cubes are in each mystery bag and how they are grouped, given clues based the number of tens and ones in each bag.
