Use a range of addition and subtraction strategies to solve twenty word problems that contain numbers 10–50.

## Focus on Numbers 10 to 50 With Worded Maths Problems

Use these addition and subtraction task cards with mini whiteboards, maths notebooks, and smart boards for a quick operations lesson warm-up.

Through this activity, students will show they can add to, take from, put together, take apart, and compare numbers 10 to 50.

For example, one card includes the following word problem

Basia is starting a school recycling program. She collects 36 bottles and 12 cans. How many items can she recycle?

## Scaffolding + Extension Tips

Support struggling students by providing manipulatives to assist them with solving the problems. Alternatively, provide students with our Problem Solving Mat to help them organise their ideas.

Challenge fast finishers who already understand the concept to write five different problems for a partner to solve.

## How to Use These Addition and Subtraction Worded Maths Problems

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to reinforce your maths lessons in the following ways:

### 🏫 Whole Class Instruction

Project the task cards on a whiteboard and work through each together, discussing different ways of approaching and completing the problems.

### 🧮 Small Group

Teach concepts in a small group setting in your maths rotations. Students can use mini whiteboards to ‘show and share’ their work for each problem.

### ✏️ Individual Practice

For an independent task, students can use a sheet of paper numbered 1–20 (or a mini whiteboard) and the task cards. Students will solve for the sum or difference and check their work.

## Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Print on cardboard for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.

To keep the task cards out of pockets or under desks, punch a hole in the corner of each to place them on a binder ring.
