382 - 147
Ways to estimate:
380 - 150 = 230
400 - 150 - 20 = 230
375 - 150 = 225
385 - 145 = 240
390 - 140 = 250
Subtraction
• Vocabulary:
• A-B=C
A is the minuend
B is the subtrahend
C is the difference
Try this:
• Is A - B = B - A?
• 6 - 4 = 4 - 6?
• What is true of 6 - 4 and 4 - 6?
• One of the worst things we can say: “You
can’t take a bigger number away from a
smaller number.” Or “You have to put the
bigger number first (in the minuend).”
Pictorial Models
• Take away
• Comparison
Number Line Model
• 7 - 9 = -2
• Why is it important to start at 0?
-2 -1 0 1

7 8 9 10
Four related facts
• If 9 - 4 = 5, then
9 - 5 = 4, 4 + 5 = 9, and 5 + 4 = 9
• You try: If 74 - 61 = 13, then …
Mental Subtraction
• Not as obvious as mental addition
• 65 - 28
Break apart the second number (65 - 20) - 8
• Adding up 28 + 30 = 58, 58 + 7 = 65, 30 + 7
• Compensation (65 + 2) - (28 + 2), 67-30
• Compatible Numbers (65 – 25, 40-3)
The name of the strategy
is not important…
• You try… and be ready to explain how
you did it. Are there other ways?
• 73 - 82
• 97 - 39
• 301 - 293
Regrouping
Show a diagram for

302 - 84
Now, indicate what you are
subtracting
• 302 - 84: Let red be the part you take
away
You try: draw pictures
• 58 - 37
• 47 - 29
Subtraction the way you
learned it…

Why did you cross out
the 6? Why did you put
a little “1” next to the 7?
Can you show this with
pictures?
Here are three other ways
• Explain why this works--use pictures or
manipulatives

6 1 6
Why does this work?
• This way worked because
• 984 - 368 is the same as adding 10 to
both numbers:
• 984 + 10 = 980 + 4 + 10 = 980 + 14
• 368 + 10 = 360 + 8 + 10 = 370 + 8
Use drawings or
manipulatives to explain…
• Here is yet another one.

A real problem
• Place the digits 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8 in the
boxes to obtain:
• Greatest sum
Least sum
Greatest difference
Least difference
