  • My students love using these! It is a fun way to revise subtraction strategies. Could you make a more difficult version where there are multiple answers that are the same for different questions (e.g. 478 – 87 = 391, 850 – 459 = 391, etc.)? I would like a modified version with that extra challenge to extend my students.
