Palindromic Numbers Investigation

In Maths today the children worked in Kagan pairs to investigate what happens when you subtract one palindromic number from another.

The children took turns to create a subtraction number sentence then their partner used a number line to count up in order to subtract.

One child chose 2 digits that were next to each other and then created two 3 digit numbers e.g. 3,2. This makes 323 and 232. The children the subtracted 232 from 323 and so on.

Try a few and see if you can spot the pattern. Then post your findings in the comments!
