  • Cut and Paste the answer
  • Easy division (sharing) to 20

Students are encouraged to look for key math words in the math word problem, write the sum where possible and the answer out in full.


I have also included a PowerPoint version along with the PDF so you can use this for whole class instruction (answer sheets provided).
