**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.

### PUMPKIN MULTIPLES

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

### PAC-MATHS

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!

i love all the maths games they are really good . i like the way that there is tricks. you put a lot of work in to your blog. I LOVE IT π

This is Bronte and Brydie talking from grade 5/6. We think that maths games are really fun and enjoyable. You 3/4’s are so lucky to have a great maths teacher Mrs. Ryan! π

Um….hello!? I teach Maths too you know!

(You’re right though, girls. Mrs. Ryan is a fantastic maths teacher!)

Oh yeah Mrs. Rutherford! Of coarse! I meant to write your name in it aswell but the computer wouldn’t let me! It made me click post comment instead! (silly computer!) π

That’s better! Hee hee!

Hee hee hee

Peter! It’s so good to see you here on the blog. I hope you have lots of fun and play lots of games. See you tomorrow :-).

I love the fish game.

(I had to edit your post, Mrs. Ryan, to make it a bit more cyber-safe!) π

Naughty Mrs Ryan.

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

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 π

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!

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

Pumkin multipules is fun because you could really learn about your time tables! π
