Unit Plan

Understanding Numbers to 1000

Objectives

In this unit, students will gain a deeper understanding of place value. Students will:

  • read and write three-digit numbers.
  • compare three-digit numbers.
  • model three-digit numbers using base-ten blocks.
  • skip count forward to and backward from 1000 by 2s, 5s, and 10s.

Essential Questions

How are relationships represented mathematically?
How can mathematics support effective communication?
How can recognizing repetition or regularity assist in solving problems more efficiently?
How is mathematics used to quantify, compare, represent, and model numbers?
What does it mean to estimate or analyze numerical quantities?
What makes a tool and/or strategy appropriate for a given task?
  • How is mathematics used to quantify, compare, represent, and model numbers?
  • How are relationships represented mathematically?
