These are a range of activities/tasks to demonstrate mastery and develop deeper thinking and deeper understanding of year 4, Grade 3 and Grade 4 Addition and Subtraction objectives. For each objective there are at least 3 activities/tasks along with answers (where possible). The document is set up so that you can quickly jump to the objective you are covering and then simply print the appropriate pages.
