  • Subtraction starts by creating stories with edible manipulatives and recording these stories in ways that make sense to the student. Concrete objects represent the edible pieces and are recorded with numbers. leading to standard subtraction formats, e.g., 8 - 6 =  2 and 8                                                                                                                          -6
