Last week in Maths, Keilani was learning how to count on from the biggest number to solve a maths problem, instead of going back to the beginning and counting from 1 which can take a while!
This involved looking at the equation and deciding which number was biggest. Next she had to
set up the first part of the problem, then count on the next number in the equation until she got her answer.
This problem was 8 + 6 = ?
Can you see how she started with 8 then counted on the rest. I tell you what, she was pretty proud of herself when she realised how easy the strategy was to use.
Keep it up Keilani!
