#2702. Sum and Difference

Mathematics, level: Elementary
Posted Sun Sep 29 11:51:47 PDT 2002 by Barb (barbkuy@evansville.net).
Howard Roosa Elementary, Evansville Indiana
Materials Required: paper, pencil, transparency
Activity Time: 5-10 minutes
Concepts Taught: Sum and Difference, Number Sense

I use this as an alternative to practicing addition and subtraction facts with fourth graders. I put the first pages on a transparencies and only show one at a time. It's a good warm up or time filler at the end of the period. Students can move from figuring them out to making their own and exchanging them.

The cut and paste didn't come out looking very good. You could save it into Word or Word Perfect and then print it out.
