## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. If we subtract 1 from one addend, we must add one to the other added for the sum to remain the same
2. When we redistribute, the total amount stays the same at all times
3. Depending on the addends, we redistribute 1s or 10s

### Common misconception

Pupils will sometimes remove or add ones or tens to one addend and forget to amend the other addend so that the calculation has been transformed but doesn't give the same sum as the original.

Encourage buddy checking of jottings as the children practise so that they can help each other to be reminded.

### Keywords

• Redistribute - Redistribution is a way of transforming a sum to make it easier to calculate mentally.

• Inverse - The inverse is the opposite or reverse operation. For example, subtraction is the inverse operation of addition.

• Efficient - Being efficient means finding a way to solve a problem quickly whilst also maintaining accuracy.

This strategy is shown with practical resources and jottings but the end goal is for the children be able to do it mentally so try to reduce such supports as quickly as possible.
