Worksheet Overview

We use ADDING when we increase or finish with more objects.



Fatima has 3 teddies and her parents give her 2 more.

How many does she have now?



We work out 3 + 2 because she now has 3 teddies and 2 more.

3 + 2 = 5

She has 5 teddies now.


We use TAKING AWAY or SUBTRACTING when we decrease or finish with fewer objects.



Fatima has 6 teddies and she gives 2 to her brother.

How many does she have now?



We work out 6 - 2 because she now has 2 teddies less than the 6 she started with.

6 - 2 = 4

She has 4 teddies now.
