Singapore Math

Chapter 17: Addition and Subtraction to 100 

Numbers to 100 can be added and subtracted with and without regrouping. 

I have been reminding students that good mathematicians pay attention to the math symbol so they know whether to add or subtract and show their work.  So, when regrouping in both addition and subtraction, students should write down their work for regrouping. 

It is always good to continue practice with double digit addition and subtraction. Here’s a fun song/rap to reinforce subtracting with regrouping!

*** If you are able, please practice math facts (addition and subtraction) with your children.  Strategies we remind students to use are: counting on and back, and using other math problems (such as doubles) to help them figure out the answer.
