The 16 reproducible worksheets in this product constitute Unit 17 in the MathQuest 1 workbook. This unit focuses on manipulating concrete materials and using pictorial representations to help students learn how to subtract any pair of 2-digit numbers with and without regrouping.
This unit is an extension, suitable for those children who have demonstrated a solid understanding of number and place value concepts. It presents a carefully-sequenced development of subtraction with 2-digit numbers by first subtracting a 1-digit number from a 2-digit number, then finding differences between multiples of 10 and then subtracting pairs of 2-digit numbers without regrouping. This progression is then repeated for subtractions that require regrouping.
This instruction is embedded in the context of the nursery rhyme "The More We Get Together.” This theme, like that in the previous unit, enables the students to act out subtraction sentences using the members of the class.
