Today, we're consolidating our work on column addition by looking at the inverse in maths. The inverse is the undoing of calculations. So, if 5 + 7 = 12, then 12 - 7 = 5. Use the part whole and bar models to explore these relationships. Remember, a whole is the same as the total, altogether, sum and is always the largest number.

Science
