MA.K.NSO.3.1

Explore addition of two whole numbers from 0 to 10, and related subtraction facts.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Instruction includes objects, fingers, drawings, number lines and equations.

Clarification 2: Instruction focuses on the connection that addition is “putting together” or “counting on” and that subtraction is “taking apart” or “taking from.” Refer to Situations Involving Operations with Numbers (Appendix A)

Clarification 3: Within this benchmark, it is the expectation that one problem can be represented in multiple ways and understanding how the different representations are related to each other.
