As usual, do a bit of Gem Maths practice. Get help if you need it as it is practice. Then we are going to keep working on those numbers between 50 and 60. Your grown up will say a number between 50 and 60 and you will write it down in numerals. How many can you get in one minute?
Subtraction - Finding the difference
Today we are going to explore another form of subtraction - finding the difference. This is when you compare two quantities and find the difference between them. Sometime it is difficult to understand that this is a form of subtraction as you are not 'taking away'.
Here is an example of a 'finding the difference' question.
It is important to make the link between language such as 'how many more/less' and it being a subtraction problem. Comparing two quantities physically make it easier to see what the difference is.
Get your grown up to set you a finding the difference problem using things from around you home.
Now try these questions.
