This Application Problem is a part of the Lesson 5, Unit 1, Grade 1. Marcus had 6 pieces of candy. He decided to give some to his mother and keep some for himself. Use pictures and numbers to show two ways that Marcus could have split up 6 pieces of his candy. This problem is designed as a bridge from the previous lesson's focus on decompositions of 6, reminding students that they can break apart numbers in more than one way.
