Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: K - 1

Reinforce your students' understanding of how a strip diagram is used to solve 1-digit addition and subtraction number facts using the part-part-whole strategy.

Part-Part-Whole Strategy Worksheets

Help your students solve addition and subtraction number facts using the part-part-whole strategy. This fundamental concept in mathematics helps students understand how things are made up of smaller parts and how those parts relate to the whole. It helps students visualize the relationship between the numbers in a fact family.

This 24-page worksheet set will require students to use a bar model as a strategy to solve addition and subtraction facts. 

Use this resource with our Part-Part-Whole Interactive Activity, an 18-slide deck, which:

  • Introduces the concept of a strip diagram.
  • Gives examples of the parts and whole in a number sentence.
  • Asks students to “fill in” missing numbers and create their own strip diagrams to represent the number facts.
