## Which Subtraction Strategy Should I Use? Try MAB Blocks!

How many different ways can you teach your students to subtract? There are many different strategies, and no single approach is the perfect fit for everyone. That’s why you introduce them to all of them and have them practise regularly to determine which strategy works best for them.

This worksheet focuses on a single strategy or method of subtracting, which is using MAB blocks as visual models to solve problems. Students will colour or mark out the subtracted blocks to determine the difference.

## Subtraction Strategy Worksheet: Scaffolding & Extend

In addition to individual student work time, use this regrouping worksheet as a:

• Maths station activity
• Post-lesson exit ticket
• Homework assignment
• Whole-class review (via smartboard)

Have you got fast finishers? Students who need a challenge can generate their numbers using dice and then use MAB blocks to model and solve their 2-digit subtraction problems.

Students needing extra support can use MAB blocks to represent the numbers and solve the problems.
