Solve the Number Bonds
This worksheet presents a series of number bond exercises, each with the number 15 at the center, linked to one known number and one unknown number. Students are tasked with determining the missing number in each bond, using their knowledge of addition and subtraction. The worksheet comprises 12 individual problems, all of which follow the same format to allow for repetition and practice. The aim is for students to fill in the empty circle with the correct number that, when added to the given number, equals 15.
The worksheet is designed to teach students about number bonds, an essential concept in early math education that focuses on the relationships between numbers. It reinforces the idea that two smaller numbers can be added to make a larger number, specifically the sum of 15 in this case. This practice helps students to become fluent in addition and subtraction facts, an important skill for more advanced math. Moreover, it encourages mental math capabilities, as students work out the solutions without the use of calculators or number lines.
