This strategy requires students to first draw an open number line beginning in the first number of the equation, then expand the second number into hundreds, tens, and ones to determine the number of jumps (hundreds), hops (tens) and steps (ones) up the number line to go. Students then make the moves and arrive at the correct answer. This strategy highlights place value & number sense knowledge as a strategy for solving 3-digit addition. Use this strategy as a step to understanding the "math" behind the standard algorithm for three digit addition.
