7.5.20 - Column Subtraction

 

Watch the videos using the links below to help you to remember how to subtract numbers using column method.

You can use expanded column subtraction, if you find it easier (watch the video below).

 

Tips to help you:

  • The biggest number always goes on top
  • Start subtracting the units, then tens, hundreds and thousands (right to left)
  • If the top digit is smaller than the bottom number, exchange from the column next door. Knock and ask for an extra 10, 100 or 1000 for whichever place value column it is in. 
  • Whilst you are working out, always ask yourself if you have enough. For example, I have 4 apples. Katie wants 6 apples. Do I have enough? If I don't, go to the tens column and get 10 more. 

 

Then complete both pages of the activity below.

There is a word document version and a PDF version - use which ever one is best for you to access.

 

Don't worry if you can't to print out the sheets, work out the answers and write them onto paper. Use the class email to send me your work - you can take a photo or send it on a word document.
