 Basic horizontal subtraction:

Subtraction to 5

Subtraction to 10

Subtraction to 20

Subtraction to 100

Longer subtraction problems to 20 (eg. 20 - 5 - 3 - 2 - 5 = )

Longer subtraction problems to 100 (eg. 100 - 12 - 22 - 15 = )

 Encouraging counting on / looking for patterns in calculations:

Subtracting 1 from any number below 20

Subtracting lots of 1’s from any number below 20

Subtracting 2 from any number below 30

Subtracting lots of 2’s from any number below 30

Subtracting 9 from any number below 100

Subtracting lots of 9’s from any number below 100

Subtracting 10 from any number below 100

Subtracting lots of 10’s from any number below 100

Subtracting 11 from any number below 100

Subtracting lots of 11’s from any number below 100

Subtracting 100 from any number below 1500

Subtracting lots of 100’s from any number below 1500

 Encouraging the use of place value:

Subtracting multiples of 10 (eg. 50 - 20 = )

Subtracting lots of multiples of 10

Subtracting multiples of 100 (eg. 500 - 200 = )

Subtracting lots of multiples of 100

Subtracting multiples of 1000 (eg. 5000 - 2000 = )

Subtracting lots of multiples of 1000
