3-Digit Grid Differences

3-Digit Grid Differences Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet presents a series of two-digit subtraction problems arranged in a vertical format. Each problem displays the minuend on top and the subtrahend beneath, with space provided for students to write the answers. The vertical arrangement is a traditional method for teaching subtraction as it clearly delineates the place value of each digit, which is particularly important when borrowing is required.

The objective of this worksheet is to strengthen students’ ability to subtract two-digit numbers and to familiarize them with the concept of regrouping or borrowing when the digit in the minuend is smaller than the corresponding digit in the subtrahend. It reinforces the understanding of place value and the mechanics of subtraction. Working through these problems, students will improve their mental math and problem-solving skills, which are critical for their mathematical development.
