As ever, start by practising Gem maths. Then we are going to be learning the numbers from 50-60. Some of you may know these already but we haven't covered them in school yet. All you need to do today is practise counting up and down in 1s between 50 and 60. Use the 100 square to help, pointing to the numbers as you go. Think about the pattern as you counted the numbers in the 20s, 30s and 40s and how this would apply to the 50s.
Subtraction - Break Apart
Today we are going to be looking at another type of subtraction problem - 'break apart' problems. Rather than remove part of quantity, 'break apart' questions split it into two parts.
For example: There are six bottles of coke. Two have been opened. How many are unopened?
This is a subtraction problem but we aren't taking anything away.
We can solve these using a sketch or using other objects to represent the numbers. Have a go at these problems below.
Six is the whole, two is a part. What is the other part?
