Zero

What is zero?

To show nothing or no object we write 0. We read 0 as zero.

For Example:

What is zero?

                            Cage 1                     Cage 2                      Cage 3

In cage 1 we observe that the cage has 2 birds in it.

In cage 2 we observe that 1 bird flies away and the cage has 1 bird in it.

In cage 3 the second bird also flies away. Now the cage has no bird in it.

Therefore, there is no bird in the cage we write 0.

Let us review the number zero.

3 boys are playing.

One of them runs away.

How many are left?

3 - 1 = 2


One more runs away.

How many are left now?

2 - 1 = 1


This boy also runs away.

How many are left now?

1 - 1 = None


None is written as zero

'0' is read as zero.

1 - 1 = 0

● Tony like cupcakes. His mother bought 3 cupcakes of different flavours from Mr. Baker's shop.

3 Cupcakes

Tony ate first 1 chocolate cupcake. Now, there are 2 cupcakes left in the plate.

2 Cupcakes

After that, Tony ate 1 strawberry cupcake. Now there is only one cupcake left in the plate.

1 Cupcake

Tony ate 1 vanilla cupcake after that, there are no more cupcakes in the plate. we say zero cupcakes in the plate.

0 Cupcake

We write 0 for zero.

Now we will discuss about math Addition and Subtraction Property of Zero.

Addition Property of ‘Zero’


When we add zero to a number, the number remains the same.

Do orally and play math games on addition

● 0 + 2 = 2

● 4 + 0 = _____       ● 2 + 0 = _____


● 5 + 0 = _____       ● 0 + 4 = _____


● 0 + 6 = _____       ● 0 + 5 = _____


● 9 + 0 = _____       ● 6 + 0 = _____


● 0 + 1 = _____       ● 0 + 9 = _____


● 3 + 0 = _____       ● 1 + 0 = _____


● 0 + 8 = _____       ● 0 + 3 = _____


Subtraction Property of ‘Zero’

There are 2 mangoes in a plate.

Mary does not take any mango.

How many mangoes will be left in the plate?

2 - 0 = 2 (two)

When we subtract zero from a number, the number still remains the same.

Do orally and play math games on subtraction

● 3 - 0 = _____

● 6 - 0 = _____

● 4 - 0 = _____

● 8 - 0 = _____

● 7 - 0 = _____

● 9 - 0 = _____

Math Only Math is based on the premise that children do not make a distinction between play and work and learn best when learning becomes play and play becomes learning.

However, suggestions for further improvement, from all quarters would be greatly appreciated.
