# Find the missing addend when adding two-digit numbers

I can find the missing addends when adding two-digit numbers.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Two-digit numbers can be partitioned to help find a missing digit or a missing addend.
- One equation can be used to help solve another equation.
- The patterns in equations can be used to help find a missing addend.

### Common misconception

When finding a missing ones digit in an addend, children may confuse the tens and ones digits in the sum, thus adding to the ones to make the amount of the tens digit or vice versa.

Partition the addends into tens and ones so the place value of the digit that is missing is clear.

### Keywords

Addend - Any of the numbers that are added together.

Digit - A single symbol used to make a numeral.
