• why did my teacher do it different?
• Many math problems can be solved using more than one method, so it’s possible that different teachers may teach different methods.

It is an advantage to understand more than one method of solving a math problem. An excellent way to check your answer is to solve the problem using a second method and see if you get the same answer.
• Should I start from the ones place or the highest number value?
• If adding and/or subtracting, start with the ones place, otherwise, starting with the second option will not give you accurate math.
