Subtracting 2-digit numbers will be our goal in Topic 9. We will begin with learning how to regroup 1 ten for 10 ones, and slowly work our way towards subtracting 2-digit numbers. Our problem solving focus will be "Two-question problems".


Keep up with the great work on the First in Math website. This is a wonderful activity to help strengthen your child's math skills on different levels and provide enrichment. www.firstinmath.com
