Think Addition

The basic strategy for subtraction is think addition.  When subtracting a fact like 9 – 4, then students can think 4 + what = 9?

The stumbling blocks for many students in this strategy is that they haven’t really solidified the relationship between addition and subtraction.  Despite practice with fact families, they haven’t managed to make the connections when dealing with subtraction facts.
