Remember the steps for our number line strategy:

  • Step 1: Write the number sentence
  • Step 2: Circle the operation (the – symbol)
  • Step 3: Draw your numberline using a ruler
  • Step 4: Put your biggest number at the END of your numberline.
  • Step 5: Partition the smaller number into tens and ones
  • Step 6: Draw your big ‘ten’ jumps on the numberline counting backwards in 10s.
  • Step 7: Draw your little ‘one’ jumps on your numberline counting backwards in 1’s.
  • Step 8: Circle the number you end on to find the answer.
