## Problem Structures for Addition & Subtraction

Quick pop quiz. How many problem structures are there for addition and subtraction problems?

If you said somewhere around 15 structures, you’re in the right ballpark. Unfortunately, students are often exposed to only the simplest structures. As teachers, we need to have an understanding of all the structures and teach them to our students in a methodical way.

“…teachers who are not aware of the variety of situations and corresponding structures may randomly offer problems to students without the proper sequencing to support students; full grasp of the meaning of the operations.” (Van de Walle et al)

The charts below were adapted from Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally (Van de Walle et al), a phenomenal book for developing your own understanding of math.

The addition/subtraction structures are grouped into three main types: Change, Part/Part/Whole, and Comparison. For each type, there are multiple structures, depending on what information is known and unknown.

## Change Problems

One of the first things you might notice is that the structures are not designated as addition or subtraction. While we typically think of joining as addition and separating as subtraction, you’ll see from the chart that is not always the case. Result Unknown is the simplest and most familiar structure. You might think of these as classic addition and subtraction problems. As we move across the chart, the problems become increasingly complex, and we see that the Change Unknown and Start Unknown structures can be interpreted as either addition or subtraction.

An appropriate way to introduce the problems is to start with the simplest, Result Unknown , problems. Start with Join problems and allow students to practice solving just that type of problem. Help students focus on the meaning of each number in the problem, in terms of Change , Start , or Result . Drawing models is a good strategy for helping students analyze and visualize each problem. Next, introduce Separate problems, again giving them practice with just that type. Then it’s time to mix them up, so students have to determine the appropriate structure, based on the problem.

Now start to move across the chart, using the same process. Introduce the next structure (Join, Change Unknown ), practice the structure, and then mix it in with the others they already know. Keep in mind that this process takes time. If you’re a second-grade teacher, make a schedule for introducing the structures throughout the school year. Use numbers appropriate to the students’ computation skills.

## Part-Part-Whole

Part-Part-Whole problems are very similar to Change. The subtle difference is that often there is no action in these problems, which makes them a little more abstract for students. The Whole Unknown structure is a very simple addition problem. In the One Part Unknown structure, we know the total and one of the parts, but we are missing the other part. This is also commonly called a Missing Addend problem. We often solve this type of problem using subtraction, but a counting-up strategy works well also. A really interesting structure is Both Parts Unknown. It’s a word problem application of knowing all the combinations for a number !

As students are introduced to more of the structures, remember that it’s just as important that they generate problems as solve them. I love an activity I call You Write the Story . Give students an equation and have them write a story to go with it and draw a model for their story.

One other note about Change and Part-Part-Whole problems, while these examples all have two addends, you can also use more than two addends to provide more of a challenge. Think: There are 425 students in the cafeteria. One hundred twenty-seven students are 5th graders, 146 are 4th graders, and the rest are 3rd graders. How many 3rd graders are in the cafeteria?

Finally, we have Comparison problems, which involve comparing two quantities–a larger quantity and a smaller one. They can also be written using either more or fewer. Fewer is by far more difficult for students. We want to make sure we introduce comparison subtraction using manipulatives to help students understand the structure. See this pos t for more information.

There you have it! All the structures for addition and subtraction problems. You can download your own copy of the tables showing the structures using the button below.

I look forward to hearing how you will teach these structures in your classroom, so be sure to leave a comment!

## Word Problems Involving Addition and Subtraction

Word problems involving addition and subtraction are discussed here step by step.

There are no magic rules to make problem solving easy, but a systematic approach can help to the problems easily.

Word problems based on addition are broadly of two types: (a) When objects of two or more collections are put together. For example:

Amy has 20 lemon sweets and 14 orange sweets. What is the total number of sweets Amy has? (b) When an increase in number takes place.

For example:

Victor has 14 stamps. His friend gave him 23 stamps. How many stamps does Victor have in all? The key words used in problems involving addition are:

s um; total; in all; all together.

Word problems based on subtraction are of several types: (a) Partitioning : Take away, remove, given away.

(b) Reducing : Find out how much has been given away or how much remains.

(c) Comparison : More than / less than.

(d) Inverse of addition : How much more to be added. The key words to look out for in a problem sum involving subtraction are: take away; how many more ; how many less ; how many left ; greater ; smaller.

1. The girls had 3 weeks to sell tickets for their play. In the first week, they sold 75 tickets. In the second week they sold 108 tickets and in the third week they sold 210 tickets. How may tickets did they sell in all? Tickets sold in the first week = 75

Tickets sold in the second week = 108

Tickets sold in the third week = 210

Total number of tickets sold = 75 + 108 + 210 = 393

Answer: 393 tickets were sold in all.

2. Mr. Bose spent $450 for petrol on Wednesday. He spent $125 more than that on Thursday. How much did he spend on petrol on those two days. This problem has to be solved in two steps.

Step 1: Money spent for petrol on Thursday

450 + 125 = $575 Step 2: Money spent for petrol on both days

450 + 575 = $1025

Examples on word problems on addition and subtraction:

1. What is the sum of 4373, 4191 and 3127? Solution: The numbers are arranged in columns and added.

Therefore, sum =11,691

2. What is the difference of 3867 and 1298?

Solution: The numbers are arranged in columns and subtracted:

Therefore, difference = 2569

3. Subtract 4358 from the sum of 5632 and 1324. Solution: Sum of 5632 and 1324

Difference of 6956 and 4358

Therefore, 2598 is the answer.

4. Find the number, which is

(i) 1240 greater than 3267.

(ii) 1353 smaller than 5292. Solution: (i) The number is 1240 more than 3267

Therefore, the number = 3267 + 1240 or = 4507 (ii) The number is 1353 less than 5292

= 5292 – 1353 or

5. The population of a town is 16732. If there are 9569 males then find the number of females in the town. Solution:

6. In a factory there are 35,675 workers. 10,750 workers come in the first shift, 12,650 workers in the second shift and the rest come in the third shift. How many workers come in the third shift? Solution: Number of workers coming in the first and second shift

= 10750 + 12650 = 23400

Therefore, number of workers coming in the third shift = 35675 - 23400 = 12275

## Math Word Problems

Welcome to the math word problems worksheets page at Math-Drills.com! On this page, you will find Math word and story problems worksheets with single- and multi-step solutions on a variety of math topics including addition, multiplication, subtraction, division and other math topics. It is usually a good idea to ensure students already have a strategy or two in place to complete the math operations involved in a particular question. For example, students may need a way to figure out what 7 × 8 is or have previously memorized the answer before you give them a word problem that involves finding the answer to 7 × 8.

There are a number of strategies used in solving math word problems; if you don't have a favorite, try the Math-Drills.com problem-solving strategy:

- Question : Understand what the question is asking. What operation or operations do you need to use to solve this question? Ask for help to understand the question if you can't do it on your own.
- Estimate : Use an estimation strategy, so you can check your answer for reasonableness in the evaluate step. Try underestimating and overestimating, so you know what range the answer is supposed to be in. Be flexible in rounding numbers if it will make your estimate easier.
