Problem solving

Subtraction

Today we are solving subtraction problems. We can use a number line to subtract in two different ways:

  • by counting  back from the largest number to the smallest number or
  •  by counting on from the smallest number to the largest ,which is known as finding the difference

           Another way to solve subtraction problems , which I know a few of you have been trying, is by using  column subtraction. 

Examples of finding the difference on a number line can be found on the 'Find the Difference ' ppt below.
