Knowing subtraction facts is helpful not only in academics; we incessantly use subtraction in our daily lives too. Just like learning to walk before you’ll run, learning subtraction and familiarizing yourself with numbers are building blocks for other math topics taught in school.
Mastering the basic math facts develops automaticity in kids. Automaticity is the ability to do things without occupying the mind with the low level details that are required; this is frequently the result of consistent learning, repetition, and practice. For instance, an experienced cyclist does not have to pay attention to turning the pedals, balancing, and holding on to the handlebars. Instead, those processes are automatic and the cyclist can concentrate on watching the road, the traffic, and other surroundings.
Until students have developed sufficient sensory-cognitive tools supporting access to symbolic memory, they won’t be able to image, store or retrieve the entire basic facts with automaticity. Due to this fact, students need a comprehensive, developmental, and multi-sensory structured system for developing automaticity with the facts.
