# Summary:

In this maths lesson plan, students learn to rename/trade when subtracting. There are 2 really good Youtube videos that assist teachers in guiding their instruction, followed up with some differentiated practice.

Year 3 Mathematics:
• Recall addition facts for single-digit numbers and related subtraction facts to develop increasingly efficient mental strategies for computation (ACMNA055)

# Maths Lesson Plan:

Orientation  5 minutes

• Focus: Students’ attention to board
• Engage: Play subtraction song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvsEbrWV00E
• Access: “Why is important to learn mental strategies to solve problems?” “What are mental strategies?”

Guided Discovery 15 mins

• Have the class sitting in a circle on the floor. Solve an algorithm using MAB blocks and the trading system. Ask questions to guide the class, such as ‘what do I do next?”
• Do the same algorithm on paper to enhance students’ understanding.

Exploration 20 mins

• Give students problems to solve students may use MAB blocks to help them solve the problems or simply use pencil and paper.

Individualising

• Support: Students having difficulty may use MAB blocks and teacher assistance will be provided.
• Extend: Provide complex problems, such as subtraction with four digit numbers and subtraction across zeros.

Reflection  5 minutes

• Share/Explain/Justify: Share and explain answers
• Consolidate: Revise any confusion
• Reflect: Who found using MAB blocks was more helpful? Why/why not?
• Challenge/Extend: Who thinks they can now go on to more challenging problems?

# Assessment:

• Observational checklists
• Anecdotal notes
