Here’s our own video about subtracting across zero!

Subtracting Across Zero

I know that many of you are having trouble with regrouping number to solve subtraction problems. Watch this video and see if it helps. We will practise ‘squaring off’ together, and see if it’s a strategy that works for you.


Play this game ‘Pumpkin Multiples’ to practise your times tables facts in a fun way.

This version of Pac-Man will help you remember your number facts. You need to use your arrow keys to move the pacman around the board, until he eats a question mark (?). A question will appear and then you need to chase the ghost with the correct answer. I played this for AGES. It’s addictive!

  5. Wow – I love the videos on subtracting across zeros! That’s a fantastic strategy. I’m going to remember that one!

  6. I always have trouble teaching subtraction when there’s a zero! The squaring off strategy was great, I think I will have to try it with my grade and see what they think πŸ™‚

    • My grade 3/4s and I absolutely love this strategy. We use it all the time now, and it’s really cleared up that tricky business of subtracting across zeros! Let us know what your class thinks, Mrs. Belej…perhaps they could even write their own comments on our blog.
      Thank you for visiting!

  7. We really like the Maths-Man game because when you play you do two things Maths and play PAC-MAN at the same time.
