Use a Graphic Organizer for Math
Zero plus anything equals
Hi, my name is Bassem Saad. I'm an associate math instructor and a Ph.D. candidate, and I'm here today for About.com to show you how to use a graphic organizer to do math.So in this video we'll be using graphic organizers to find facts to five; that means we're going to find all the positive sums that add up to five. So we'll begin with zero; that is, zero, plus something, equals five. Well, zero, plus anything, equals that same thing. So zero, plus five, equals five.In our next organization bubble, we want to flip the order so we have five, plus zero. Now we have all the zeroes taken care of, let's count one above. That is, one, plus something, equals five. One, plus four, equals five. And then we want to change the order in the next organization bubble: four, plus one, equals five. Well, we do another one -- you go one up from one, so one, two.Two, plus something, equals five. Well, two, plus three, equals five. And the next organization bubble, we just switch the order: three, plus two, equals five. So now we know how to use graphic organizers to do math.Thanks for watching, and to learn more visit us on the web at About.com.
