The Common CORE has a strong emphasis on number lines with all operations, number placement, as well as fractions. This packet is designed to help children construct their knowledge of subtraction using a number line. Number lines are challenging for children to truly understand. The more experiences they have visualizing numbers and operations the greater their number sense will be and their confidence will grow.
This packet includes an example page of SOME strategies to use on the number line. There are worksheet style number line problems, as well as some designed to be used in the math notebook. Additionally I've included a few word problems to put their number line subtraction into practice.
The number line problems can be used for individual or partner work. When children have enough practice, you can even use one for a quick exit slip or assessment.
