Middle S are flexing their Mathematics muscles this week by tackling the four operations and identifying them in worded problems. After un-packing the language of addition and subtraction, they applied the specific vocabulary to solving problems such as these:
- Anne bought an orange for $0.45 and a yoghurt for $1.20 at the school canteen. How much did she spend?
- Jason team kicked 32 goals during the game and Dean's team kicked 25 goals. How many goals did Jason's team win by?
Can you identify what operation (addition or subtraction) is being represented by each problem?
Do you know any worded-problems you could share with Middle S?
