This worksheet is a practice tool for students to learn about decomposing numbers into two parts. It features six boxes, each with a different target number ranging from 4 to 10. Students are prompted to fill in two blank spaces to show different ways to decompose the target number into a sum of two numbers. They must also write the corresponding equation that represents the decomposition.
The worksheet is designed to teach students the concept of number decomposition, which is an important foundational skill in mathematics. It helps students understand that numbers can be split into different pairs of addends that add up to the same total. This exercise encourages flexible thinking about numbers and reinforces basic addition skills. By completing the worksheet, students gain practice in identifying the various combinations that can be used to compose a given number.
