Subtraction Fun in 1/2ST!


Posted by reneetimion | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 15, 2016

Recently students from 1/2ST have been looking at subtraction in maths. More importantly, we’ve been practising the mental strategy of ‘counting back’. It is important to master mental strategies before solving written equations.

To warm up our brains (and to have a bit of fun!) we played Subtraction Bowling. As you can see from the pictures, we had 10 pins and then 3 were knocked over, making: 10 – 3 = 7. Perhaps you would like to have a game at home! Another thing you can do at home is practise counting backwards or playing ‘Beat the Bomb’ – ask your child how. What number can you count back from?
