Each of us have had some trouble with math once in a while right? It could be multiplication, division, or even subtraction, like me. Subtraction and I don't get along at all. It's always been hard for me. I'd always add or multiply by accident with, still do actually. I just try my best and I'll use my fingers, pictures, or something to help  me figure it out.


One strategy I worked out with subtraction is the fingers, it helps me count backwards so that I see that it's being taken away. I'll start at ten or any other number with my thumb and count back. I just have to really pay attention to what I'm doing. It's a little frustrating, though. Another strategy I like to use is drawing pictures or tally marks. Once again, it helps me actually see the numbers being taken away. These strategies could help you to if you learn by doing something or seeing something.
