Help Dr. Math Dr. Math has been really busy this year helping students understand math. Since you have been working with many kinds of addition and subtraction problems this year, he could use your help in answering some of these letters. These students need help in understanding so be sure to explain clearly and use drawings and equations to support your explanations. You may wish to choose your own pseudonym (Dr. Math is not a real name!).
Dear Dr. Math, Please help me! My aunt is making a gum wrapper chain to decorate her basement. She will pay me a penny for each gum wrapper. I cleaned up my room and found 35 gum wrappers. Then I snuck into my brother’s room and found 48 gum wrappers. Then I looked in my dad’s car and found 22 more gum wrappers. How can I figure out how many pennies my aunt should give me? Sincerely, All gummed up in Greensboro

Understanding Number Concepts and Relationships Deep understanding of number concepts and relationships does not develop quickly. Children need ongoing and multiple opportunities to develop number sense: to count and compare quantities, to add and subtract, to work with place value in ways that ask them to think and reason, to see relationships, and to make connections. –Kathy Richardson, How Children Learn Number Concepts, 2012 37
A complete and rich understanding of number involves many different ideas, relationships, and skills. It takes time and lots of experiences for children to develop a full understanding of number that will grow and enhance all of the further number-related concepts of the school years. –Van de Walle & Lovin, Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics Grades K-3, 2006
