Subtraction Facts: Subtracting from 6
The goal should be to eventually have the student answer
these facts from memory, although this doesn't typically happen until
later grades. In the meantime, students typically need to
calculate answer by counting objects of some type. While addition
facts can typically be answered by counting figures - subtraction facts
are answered by writing and crossing out "tally-marks" - objects of some
kind - or by counting up on one's fingers. Whichever method is used
our main goal here is to insure the student simply understands the concept
of subtraction with small numbers. In other words, do they know that
subtraction means to be "taking-away and that the answer will always be
smaller. If too much time is taken in calculating answers, the worksheet
should be given for additional practice.
Tell me the answer to the subtraction facts below as I point to them.
