Solving Problems with Subtraction!


To day you are going to be solving problems using the subtraction skills you have learnt to help you. In class, you may have seen this strategy to solve maths problems before. It doesn't just work with addition but multiplication, division and subtraction too! Explain the steps you need to take to someone else in your house.

Remember to keep a note of anything you do not understand to ask a teacher or a grown up at home for help.
