Joe’s Carrots: A book about Subtraction
James Burnett, Calvin Irons, Paula Herbert
Joe’s Carrots: A book about Subtraction uses a language-rich approach of rhythm, rhyme, and repetition to engage children with maths concepts and support key literacy skills. Subtraction can be represented using three different models: missing addend, take away, and difference (comparison). Joe’s Carrots introduces missing-addend subtraction. The story is also used to link missing-addend to take-away subtraction.
