Subject: Which way is correct?
What is the correct to teach the following problem? Suzy had 25 cents. She found 26 more cents on the way to the movie. About how much money does she have now? Do you teach the students to add 25 plus 26 and the round 51 to 50, or is the correct way to have tem round 25 to 30 and 26 to 30 and come with 60 as the answer?
