Subtraction Learning

Subtraction is a process which most children learn quite naturally as soon as they learn to start counting. During kindergarten and first grade, it is really important for kids to have the chance to work practically with their math.

An example might be that a child has 10 sweets. They give 3 to their teddy. How many do they have left? What if they gave another to their teddy? What if their teddy had 8 sweets, how many would be left for them?

Later on, when children are confident Subtracting practically, they can progress on to number lines or counting back in their heads. When children have understood this, they can begin to learn their Subtraction facts and progress on to column Subtraction.

During Second Grade, children should be learning the following mental subtraction skills:

  • learning their subtraction facts to 20;
  • subtracting 1, 10 or 100 from any 3 digit number;

For pencil and paper methods, children should be able to:

  • subtract numbers with up to 3 digits;
