Practice identifying and using different subtraction strategies with a set of printable math puzzles.

Number Lines, Ten Frames, Subtraction, Oh My!

When teaching subtraction to primary school students, it can be helpful to use visual aids like ten frames and number lines. These tools provide a tangible representation of numbers and equations, making it easier for youngsters to grasp the abstract concept of subtraction. By engaging with these aids, students are more likely to understand the process of subtraction. 

To help your young math students master their subtraction skills, consider using this set of printable puzzles as a fun and challenging math station. To reinforce their understanding, the puzzles challenge them by presenting number sentences, ten-frame representations, and number line diagrams. Students will solve and match different subtraction problems with their solution, number line representation, and ten-frame representation.
