Mental Math: Subtracting and Adding by 10

In this video with worksheet practice, the Kids Academy teacher, practices adding and subtracting 10 to a number. When adding or subtracting 10 to a number, students see that only the number in the tens place changes. With practice, students do these types of computations mentally.  A student’s number sense improves and adding and subtracting by 10, to and from any number, becomes easier.

The video teacher first works some examples on the whiteboard. After, he explains the worksheet. The task is to look at several equations and put a checkmark beside the equations that are correct.

Extension activities include using base 10 blocks to add 10 to a number as well as decomposing a number and then adding 10. Students see the relationship and patterns in numbers. This makes more complex operations easier as the student progresses to higher grades and levels.

Adding and subtracting 10 to a number improves number sense and encourages students to do more mental math.

Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!
Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
