***Check out the PREVIEW and thumbnails for a detailed view of the strategy!***
This strategy requires students to first draw an open number line ending in the first number of the equation, then expand the second number into hundreds, tens, and ones to determine the number of jumps (hundreds), hops (tens) and steps (ones) back the number line to go. Students then make the moves and arrive at the correct answer. This strategy highlights place value & number sense knowledge as a strategy for solving 3-digit subtraction. Use this strategy as a step to understanding the "math" behind the standard algorithm for subtraction.
