# Max Maths, Year 3, Practice, Review of subtraction facts and mental subtraction

In the Max Maths programme for Year 3, students are encouraged to practice and review their subtraction skills through mental arithmetic. The exercises are designed to help them swiftly calculate differences by subtracting smaller numbers from larger ones, enhancing their mental calculation abilities. The first set of problems focuses on single-digit subtractions, such as '7 minus 6' and '9 minus 9', as well as subtracting single digits from teen numbers, like '11 minus 4' and '17 minus 8'. These exercises are crafted to reinforce students' understanding of basic subtraction facts.

The second set of problems advances to subtracting multiples of 10, challenging students to mentally compute differences when larger numbers are involved. Examples include '22 minus 10' and '39 minus 30', progressing to more complex calculations such as '62 minus 30' and '89 minus 70'. This section is aimed at strengthening the students' ability to quickly subtract tens from various numbers. The practice tasks are designed to be completed mentally, promoting speed and accuracy in mental subtraction. Students are directed to workbook pages 56 to 59 for additional exercises and practice opportunities.
