Column Subtraction - exchanging a ten

Two options today depending on how you found Maths yesterday:

  1. Column subtraction NOT exchanging a ten - this was yesterday's learning so if you need more practice of this (or if you stuck with drawing deines yesterday) have a go at these questions in a column. You can also look back at yesterday's video for help if you need.
  2. Column subtraction exchanging a ten as shown in today's video. This is a tricky concept so don't worry if this takes a little longer to understand. If you'd like to do these questions drawing the deines next to the column as well, this is a very useful step.
