Looking for a way to have kids practice their addition and subtraction strategies along with comparing quantities? There are two sets of puppy-themed pages here at varying levels where students are asked to compare the sums of addition or subtraction equations using the < and > = symbols.
For example, which is greater: 3+5 or 4+2?
2 addition pages
2 subtraction pages
1 page where students create their own equations and have a partner determine which are the least/greatest
The final page has 15 equations with 3 addends. It breaks it down into steps of adding two numbers together first, and then adding the final addend.
All pages are designed as blackline masters to be printer friendly :)
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.B.4 Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.C.5 Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
CCSS.Math.Content.1.OA.B.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.2 Examples: If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
