Decomposing to 10
This worksheet is structured to assess a student’s understanding of decomposing numbers within the range of 10. It features three separate exercises, each with a different target number (5, 8, and 6) displayed above a series of blank squares. Students are instructed to fill in the squares with numbers that add up to the target number above. The layout provides a visual aid to help students conceptualize the breakdown of numbers into smaller parts.
The worksheet’s objective is to teach students the concept of number decomposition, which involves breaking down numbers into possible addends that combine to form the original number. It serves as a tool for enhancing their addition skills by requiring them to find multiple combinations of numbers that result in the given target number. This activity also bolsters their number sense by allowing them to explore the different components that make up a number. Furthermore, it prepares students for more complex arithmetic by establishing a strong foundation in understanding the properties of numbers.
