Counting Down To

When counting down to the smaller number to solve subtraction problems, students count backward from the larger number. For example, when solving 9 – (?) = 6, a student could count backwards from nine knowing he or she is counting to the number six, and say, “eight, seven, six”. In this procedure students would often hold up fingers as they count and read the answer from the number of fingers visible at the end.
