💪Strengthen Those Maths Muscles – Addition Strategies with Two-Digit Numbers

Are you currently going through the process of explicitly teaching the different addition strategies to your students? This set of addition strategy mats focuses on compensation, split, hundreds chart, and jump strategies. These work mats are the perfect addition to your maths rotations; laminate them and have students use a whiteboard marker so they can be used repeatedly.

Structured Approach to Two-Digit Addition Problems

Addition strategies provide children with structured approaches to solving two-digit addition problems, enabling them to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts involved and become more proficient in their calculations. By employing strategies like the jump strategy, split strategy, compensation strategy, and others, children learn to break down complex problems into manageable parts, make connections between numbers, and develop mental maths skills. These strategies build their number sense, enhance their problem-solving abilities and improve their accuracy and efficiency when adding two-digit numbers.
