#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, you will be asked some wordy problems and must use maths to work out the answers.

Example

There are 18 children on a bus.

3 get off and 2 more get on.

How many are left on the bus?

This uses both subtraction and addition!

18 - 3 + 2 = 15 + 2 = 17

17 children are left on the bus

Don't be put off by all the words, there will be some sort of calculation to do in there somewhere!

Learning how to read a question and work out what sort of calculation is needed is a really important skill. So, if you can get to grips with these, you will be a super maths wizard!

Are you ready to have a go?
