This series of worksheets was designed as a companion to the Addition and Subtraction Story Problem Organizer. Struggling math students benefit greatly from visual representations. The worksheets help the student understand the underlying patterns of the three types of addition and subtraction story problems. Once the relevant numbers have been inserted into the drawings, students can more easily learn to write number sentences with unknowns in all positions. These guided experiences help the brain “catch” the patterns. With enough experience, the student will learn to draw arrow diagrams and tape diagrams without the use of the organizer. The worksheets present addition and subtraction within 100, but the double digits can be changed to single digits for lower functioning students.
