This worksheet is designed to practice subtraction using dominoes as a visual aid. Each domino is depicted with a varying number of dots on each half, and students are prompted to count the dots, write the corresponding numbers, and calculate the difference. The layout of the worksheet includes a series of dominoes lined up with subtraction signs and blank squares where the students are expected to write the numerical values and the final answer. This approach turns an abstract arithmetic operation into a more concrete and visual task.
The worksheet aims to reinforce the concept of subtraction by providing a hands-on counting activity. It helps students associate the physical act of counting dots with the numerical process of subtraction. The visual representation of subtracting smaller numbers from larger ones is a foundational skill in mathematics, and this worksheet serves to strengthen that skill. Additionally, by translating the dots into numbers, students enhance their number recognition and subtraction fluency, important steps in their mathematical education.
