EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students add and subtract mixed units of capacity (for example, adding 3 gallons 1 quart + 6 gallons 3 quarts, or subtracting 9 gallons 2 quarts - 4 quarts). They compare two strategies for composing and decomposing units in these problems, and determine which one they prefer.
