# T.I.P.S.

• Students should use their prior knowledge from first grade regarding 10 more or 10 less to understand that adding 10 to a number increases the digit in the tens place by 1 and subtracting 10 to a number decreases the digit in the tens place by 1. Students can then apply this to adding and subtracting 100 and the increase or decrease in the digit in the hundreds place by 1. Students should be able to add or subtract 10 or 100 mentally to or from any given number up to 1,200.
