Maths Word Problems

Last week 2nd Class were working hard on some ‘Word Problems’ in Maths. We looked for KEY WORDS in the questions to help us decide whether to use a ‘+’ or ‘-‘ sign. We then made number sentences to help us find the answers.

We even started to write our own word problems. Can you write one below for the class to answer?

Addition key words….


Subtraction key words…. (remember when we ‘take away’ we always take a SMALLER number from a BIGGER number)
