This week in maths, the Stage 3 group have been learning how to count on from the biggest number. Mrs C threw them a few tricky equations like: 3 + 16 = where they had to identify that the biggest number wasn't the first number. They learned that they could swap these around to start from the biggest number, they ended up with 16 + 3 = _
They then had to hold the number 16 in their heads and count on 3 more like this: 16 - 17 - 18 - 19, instead of always starting from 1.
Here are some photo stories of our Superheroes solving problems using this strategy...
