Addition, Subtraction and Problem Solving

Year Two Children take your time to work through the below questions.

Remember to read the question carefully and to identify the correct operation:

are you adding +, subtraction -, or calculating the answer =. 

Can you rewrite the mathematical equations in any other way to help you solve the calculation?

Don't forget you can always use resources to help you problem solve.

Partitioning, Addition and Subtraction

Year Two children I know that you are amazing at partitioning numbers, can you demonstrate to your parents how you can split a 2-digit/3-digit number into hundreds, tens and ones?


I have attached some 'Dienes Tens and Ones' below (or you can use representative at home).

Please compose a 2-digit number, show it on the 'Tens and Ones Grid',

partition it on the Part-Part Whole. How many ways can you partition the same numbers?

For example. 34 = 30 + 4   or   34 = 33 + 1   or.   34 = 10 + 24


Create two 2-digit numbers and add them! Repeat the above process.

You can partition each number into tens and ones first, then add the tens, add the ones.

For example. 34 + 25  is 30 + 20 and 4 + 5.

Or 4 + 5 is 9, so 30 + 20 + 9 = 59 What other number facts can you use?


You can also use the dienes to practise subtraction, in the same way as above.

I have attached a 100-square to support. Don't forget to check your answers. 


Challenges: Make 100 and Zero the Hero - Enjoy and Good Luck!
