1. ## Clarification on addition boundries

Good evening everyone.

I was wondering if someone would be able to clarify something for me.

I'm currently a teaching assistant trainee for a small school in Staffordshire, England.
I can teach people all about biology, ICT and even German - Maths however is a different story

This term I am helping a year 4 class with math problems. I've been working through my lesson plan fairly easy, but tonight I have reached a small snag.

I've been working through guidelines such as counting back by 10,100, 1000. Recall Addidtion/Subtraction, etc etc.

One of them is "Add/subtract a pair of two-digit numbers (not crossing
10 or 100 boundary)"

Can someone clarify what is meant by this please? Obviosuly I know how to add/subtract two digit numbers, but what is this 10/100 boundry? Does this just mean I can not go below 10 and above 100, or am I missing something?

Any help would be greaty appreciated

I'm guessing (German is much easier )

Probably it is meant that the digits add up to maximal 9.

An example: 32 + 55 is allowed - but: 35 + 47 is not allowed because 5 + 7 is greater than 10, that means you crossed the border.

82 + 16 is allowed - but 82 + 26 is not allowed beacuse 80 + 20 is greater than 100 so you crossed the border again.

... and now I hope that I understood the question correctly.
