Aut1.8.4 - Fact families - the 8 facts

This is "Aut1.8.4 - Fact families - the 8 facts" by White Rose Maths on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

We are going to use the skills we have already learnt about fact families to now include the subtraction facts as well as the addition ones (that we did before Christmas). You worked so hard at the addition facts, so hopefully you will manage this by watching the video and answering the questions. If you are finding it tricky just let us know and we will try to give more guidence.

 

Remember for addition - 

Part + Part = Whole

Whole = Part + Part

 

For subtraction remember we need to take a part away from the whole to start with and that will equal the other part. 

Whole - Part = Part

Part = Whole - Part

 

Please see the example below.

5 is the whole. One part is 3 and the other part is 2. 

 

4 Addition facts                                                        4 subtraction facts

2 + 3 = 5                                                                   5 - 3 = 2

3 + 2 = 5                                                                   5 - 2 = 3

5 = 2 + 3                                                                   2 = 5 - 3

5 = 3 + 2                                                                   3 = 5 - 2

                                                                                 Remember these last 2 facts is where a part starts                                                                                   the number sentence.
