Estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers
Inverse Operations - Addition and Subtraction
I designed this resource to help children to visualise the relationship between addition and subtraction. They can then use this relationship to solve missing number problems. There are a wide range of levels, from adding within 20 to using a calculator to add and subtract 5 digit numbers and decimals.
Place the answer to calculations on a number line. An enormous array of choice. Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Ranging from adding numbers to 10 to multiplying 4 digit numbers. Great for combining teaching calculations and approximations with developing an understanding of place value.
