**WOW, Another alternative method to column subtraction made EASY!**

Although this method is not as easy as it sounds it makes a great starter discussion and debate with your maths classes. Demonstrate with an example and give your pupils a few questions to practice this method and start a discussion.

Please leave a comment and let us know the feedback from your pupils.
