Subtraction Tables Math is Fun
Subtraction is a key aspect of foundation maths. If your child enjoys subtraction they will have cleared a important hurdle in their journey to mastering basic maths. Subtraction Tables has been specially designed to keep learning fun, helping young children to learn by themselves then practice what they have learned before testing their skills by themselves or with others. It is another App in Unit 11’s popular Math is fun series.
The learning includes spoken subtraction tables from 1 to 10 which helps with memory learning as well as with number pattern development. This is then supported by an automated number line which indicates the result of any subtraction. There is also a traditional counter mechanism which has been enhanced to help subtract the counters, giving visual feedback of the sums and allowing physical counting of 2D objects. Development testing showed these mechanisms were very popular with young children quickly improving their subtracting ability and understanding how to use them.
You can set whether the subtractions you do should be allowed to equal negative numbers. This allows children who haven't learnt negative numbers to be able to practice only positive numbers, and once they're ready for the next step you can simply turn negative questions on.
The tests are a great way to show how much has been learnt. Take on the test for each individual subtraction table at a range of levels. You can also use the optional timer to keep track of your best time for each table and level.

Multiplayer. There is a turn based 2 player test mode included. This fun element can be used for children to test themselves against friends, brothers and sisters or even mum and dad!
