Seems to be a bit of a sticking point for DD (yr1) - eg if given something like 7 + __ = 7 she would say 7 goes in the gap.

Any bright ideas please? smile

maybe turn it around and write it as

7 = 7 + ?

How would she cope with 7+0=?, i would do a few like that and 7-0=?

I agree she needs to have lots of practical experience ...if you have 7 buttons how many more do you need to make 7?
