TLF ID M021821
This sequence of two lessons explores early algebraic thinking around the concept of equivalence. Students develop equivalence understanding by partitioning numbers into two parts. They explore the commutative property and compensation as they are challenged to find all possible combinations. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points and student resources. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
