About Early Subtraction Problematized Situations Lesson Plan:
- are everyday situations familiar to the learner,
- create scenarios that can be resolved in a number of different ways,
- have multiple entry and exit points,
- lead to developing deep understanding of the big ideas in maths,
- allow students to make choices about how to use what they do know and can do.
Problematized Situations are planned specifically to provide challenges that lead to the discovery of the big ideas in maths and to provide just-in-time learning situations that the teacher can capitalise on and formalise. Students work in groups where collaboration rather than competition leads to the development of a community of maths learners.

We need to develop flexibility as well as fluency with subtraction and that starts in the early years. The strategy lessons form the first part of a series that gives a comprehensive coverage of this topic.
Multiplicative thinking has been shown to be a crucial part in the development of numeracy. The mental routines form an ideal introduction to a strategy or problematized situation lesson on this multiplicative thinking.
There are 10 problematized situations, each on a separate slide, that can be displayed or printed for use by the students. The Lesson Plan gives a framework that can be used with any or all of the problematized situations. We have also included Anchor Charts for the follow-up lesson.
Multiplicative thinking has been shown to be a crucial part in the development of numeracy. The word problems help students explore and discuss strategies by completing a 4-frame poster to show different routes to the solution.
There are 9 number talk slides, that can be displayed or printed for use by the students. After a few number talk sessions, the students should be encouraged to make their own slides.
The role that games play in the conceptual understanding of and fluency with subtraction is not to be underestimated. The games presented here allow students to:
- have fun practice (repetition) of counting back,
- become familiar with recording on numbered pathway games and empty number lines,
- begin to just know or predict the answer to a count-back 1, 2 or 3.
