2 Try and read the difference without using rods to fill the space. 3 See if there is an easier way to read the difference. (Pupils move the rod representing the second number to the right so that the space for the

difference is on the left.) FIG. 88a. 17 – 5 =

4 Now you can read the difference without using rods to fill the space. The second step is attempted when numbers up to 100 are being studied and subtractions involving larger numbers are given. 1

Arrange your rods to represent 56 – 35 (and 56 – 38) using rods end to end.

2 Subtract 30 from each number. difference remain the same?

3 Try to read the difference without using rods to fill the space. (This may be found difficult by some.)
