Children find subtraction sums much more difficult than adults might expect. When objects are physically taken away it makes sense but even when there is still some support – maybe a number line, it’s very common for children to find a way to justify an incorrect answer. Play these games using the support of an innovative number chase number line and your child will be guided away from common errors made when a number line is used for counting back.
The final game will really help your child develop a feel for number. This is so important because they will then know, if the answer they work out for a sum, makes sense.
