Maths Meeting – using the language of addition and subtraction

We played a game where we had to make our number the same as George’s. After a bit of ┬ádiscussion, we worked out that we could get more Numicon and add it to the number to make it the same, or as J said, “Cut a bit off” (subtract) to make it the same. It really encouraged us to use the language of addition and subtraction.
