What do you get when you mix a sloth, a zoo, and a place value chart? A math problem of course! Join Eric as he helps us learn how to add three digit numbers. This video shows that adding three digit numbers, like 192 + 147, isn't too different from the addition we already know. Use a place value chart and base ten blocks, and remember, always start with the ones place. Don't let the sloths slow you down!

Understand that adding three digit numbers follows the same steps as adding one or two digit numbers

Accurately use a place value chart to solve three digit addition problems, remembering to start in the ones place

Practice regrouping in the ones and tens place
