## 2.NBT.A.1 Flawed Reasoning Place Value

Evidence Statement 3.C.4-7  Distinguish correct explanation/reasoning from that which is flawed, and if there is a flaw in the argument, present corrected reasoning. (For example, some flawed student reasoning is presented and the task is to correct or improve it.)  Content Scope 2. NBT (for grade 3 this is previous knowledge from grade 2)

### Ribbon Count

The table below shows the number of ribbons a swim team earned during their swim season.
