Subject Mathematics
Grade III
Students` Learning Outcomes
 Solve real life problems involving addition.
Information for Teachers
 Real life problems mean the situations or problems happening in the real world.
 Through real world application, students are able to better comprehend the practical application.
 While teaching the lesson, also consult textbook where and when applicable.
Material / Resources
Writing board, chalk / marker, duster, Mathematics textbook, chart (having the important points to solve real life problems)
Introduction
 Illustrate the following number story in front of the class:
 Ask the students: How can we solve this question?
 After their response, call any student on the board and ask to write the given and required information from the number story.
 Tell the students that the word “altogether” means we have to find the total number of stamps collected. So we will do addition.
 Ask any student to solve the question on the board.
 Check the work and tell the students that these types of questions are called real life problems. Also we called them story based questions.
 Tell the students that let us practice different real life problems involving addition (with and without carrying)
Development
Activity 1
 Display the following chart in front of the class:
 Explain each point from the chart with the help of example used in introductory activity.
 At the end, ask any student to repeat that points orally in front of the class.
Activity 2
 Write the following number story on the board:
 Read the question and ask the students to tell the given and required information.

 How many men in the town?
 How many women in the town?
 What we have to find?
 How can you solve this question?

 Collect their response and ask them to solve the question in their notebooks.
 Move through the class to check the work and correct the mistakes if any.
 On completion, solve the question on the board. Also introduce the words like ‘total’, ‘sum’, ‘altogether’ so that they could easily understand and solve the question.
Activity 3
 Divide the students in groups of 3 to 4.
 Write the following real life problem on the board:
 Ask the students to solve the question in their notebooks using the guidelines explained in Activity 1.
 Check the answer of any student from each group.
 Then ask those students to check the work of remaining students.
 At the end, announce the winner group having the students with more correct answers.
 Appreciate that group and ask the remaining groups to recheck their work and correct the mistakes.
Sum up / Conclusion
 Students will be asked to:
 Revise the procedure to solve the real life problems of addition with the help of chart used in Activity 1.
