Find one more and one less
Home learning focus
More advanced than counting, finding one more and one less is knowing which number comes after and before a number between 1 and 100.
This lesson includes:
four interactive activities
Add one or subtract one
To work out which number is one more than a number, you need to add one.
For example, 45 + 1 = 46
46 is one more than 45.
To work out which number is one less than a number, you need to subtract one.
For example, 45 - 1 = 44
44 is one less than 45.
