In this lesson, students solve relationship-based "take apart with result unknown" problems, involving a set of items that can be taken apart into smaller subsets (for example, "There are 6 children. 4 children are wearing black shoes. The rest are wearing white shoes. How many children are wearing white shoes?"). They work with simple math drawings and equations to represent these stories and connect the act of crossing off to the symbol for subtraction.
