1. How to Perform Subtraction: Steps & Examples
Subtraction is one of the basic operations in math. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can view and understand subtraction so that you can easily perform it.
2. How to Complete the Subtraction Sentence
Subtraction is something you do to figure out how much is left, how much to give away, or how much is missing. During this lesson, you will learn how to complete a subtraction sentence when different parts are missing.
3. Working with Subtraction Input-Output Tables
In this lesson, you'll find out what an input-output table is and how to use one. You'll also learn about the vocabulary used with the table and how to complete a subtraction input/output table.
4. How to Subtract Numbers Up to Three Digits
This lesson will teach you how to subtract numbers up to three digits. Try some practical examples with only three short steps to follow in order to ensure success when subtracting.
5. How to Balance Subtraction Equations
Watch this video lesson to learn how you can find the missing value in a subtraction equation. Learn what it takes to make sure that both sides of a subtraction equation are equal.
6. Identifying Subtraction Patterns Over Increasing Place Values
In this lesson, identifying subtraction patterns over increasing place values will be covered. The strategy taught will include using basic facts to help find solutions to more advanced problems. There will be a quiz at the end.
