Addition and Subtraction Fact Family

Fact families are a fun way to allow learners to see the correlation between the different mathematical operations. Addition and subtraction and multiplication and division are operations that work in exactly the opposite way. Using fact families to show this relation, can help them to come to this understanding quicker.

  • Print copies of the recording sheet and keep it at a math center.
  • Ask students to take the task cards and write down the fact family corresponding to the three numbers. 
  • Alternatively, this can be used as a ‘Write the Room’ Activity where the cards can be placed around the room, and students get up, walk around, find the cards, and write down the fact family.
