Finding the missing addend

Students practice finding the missing addend by playing a fun game called "What's in the cup?"  Partners take turns hiding a portion of the total chips underneath the cup.  The other partner has to "guess" how many chips are hidden underneath the cup.  They then have to write the associated subtraction facts and the associative fact.  This is always a lot of fun and most of them think they are doing magic!


  1. Wow! What an interesting way to introduce the missing addend! Thanks!

  5. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    But imagine if you added some great visuals
    or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and video clips, this website could definitely be one of the greatest in its field.
