In this task, you will be adding two four-digit numbers with exchanges. You need to use place value counters to represent what is happening when we exchange, then write it into the column method. TASK 1: Watch the video on the first slide to see an example that has been done for you. 1) Use to drag the place value counters into the place value chart to represent each calculation 2) Use , or to write the calculation in columns. 3) Starting with the ones, add up each column. Remember to show what you have exchanged! CHALLENGE: Read the word problems. Work out the calculation you need to do, represent it using place value counters then complete the column method to find the answers. REMEMBER: if there are 10 or more counters in the column, you need to exchange (e.g. 10 ones would be exchanged for 1 ten; 10 tens would be exchanged for 1 hundred)
