Make 10 Strategy for Addition--Common Core
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics include using general strategies that can be used to help students gain fluency when adding and subtracting within 20. The "make ten" strategy for addition is helpful. Once students master this skill, it can be used generally when adding 36 + 8. This is a strategy that students begin in kindergarten and are expected to master by the end of second grade.
