Compare the Differences Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is centered around the concept of subtraction, presenting problems for students to solve. Each problem is enclosed within a circle and is comprised of two numbers between 1 and 20, from which the student must subtract the smaller number from the larger. Instructions at the top suggest that after finding the difference, students should use symbols such as check marks, crosses, or faces to indicate completion or understanding of each problem. The worksheet is neatly arranged, allowing space for students to write the answers within each circle.

The aim of this worksheet is to practice basic subtraction skills, focusing on single-digit and simple two-digit numbers. It helps students become familiar with subtracting smaller numbers from larger ones without regrouping, which is a foundational arithmetic skill. By completing this worksheet, students will enhance their ability to quickly and accurately calculate differences. The use of symbols to mark each completed problem also introduces a self-assessment component, encouraging students to reflect on their level of comfort with the material.
