## Addition Using Strategies

# Add or Subtract

The Add or Subtract worksheet is a math exercise designed for year 1 or year 2 students. The worksheet presents a series of simple equations that require the student to add or subtract a number in order to make the equation true. The student must then write either a "+" or "-" sign in the blank space provided to indicate whether they added or subtracted. Finally, the student is asked to draw a picture of the equation to help reinforce the concept visually.

This type of exercise is useful for teaching basic arithmetic skills and for helping students to develop an understanding of the relationship between addition and subtraction. It also helps to reinforce the idea that equations can be represented visually as well as numerically.
