Subtraction Quizzes & Trivia

I suddenly realize I have to answer 5 quizzes. I finished 3. How many am I left with? Hm, not so difficult, is it? Then, how about some of these: what is the Latin name of the square tablet strewn with dust that the Romans used in order to solve difficult subtractions?

Oh wait, let’s not step back from the math in land in the land of history. Here you go then, solve this one 3 – (-2) – 7 – (-8) – 6 =? But still, let’s go back to that history bit for just one more question: what are the two most widely used methods of teaching subtraction to young school age children? Here’s a quick hint: both names of the methods start with “a” (a capital “a”, as in a country name that starts with “a”, get it?!). Now I’m going to leave you to it: happy subtracting!
