CAN you count backwards? Test your skills with this online exercise.
This is a good test for early stage subtraction skills – ideally kids in kindergarten or first grade – and presents you with a number line running from one to ten.
It sets you a subtraction question, allowing you to count back along the line to work out the right answer.
Type in your answer and, if you’re right, it will count back along the line showing you how you get to the answer. If you’re incorrect, it will give you a clue first time you get a wrong answer, and then show you if you get it wrong again.
This is presented in a friendly fashion, and with no timer ticking down, so it’s a great way of learning those early skills in math.
