Free Y1 maths worksheets: Two numbers to make a total

graphic calculationsBack to calculating this week. These two maths worksheets look at addition from a different angle. The answer is given and children have to find two different sums to make the answer.

This is a good test of children’s understanding of addition. It will also help them with the idea that 4 + 3 is the same as 3 + 4.

Children lacking in confidence may tend to go for the easier answers: don’t be afraid to ask them how other ways can they think of.

For example 7 can be made by:

7 + 0, 0 + 7, 6 + 1, 1 + 6, 5 + 2, 2 + 5, 4 + 3, 3 + 4.

(Keep to whole numbers with young children!!)
