## Subtraction Worksheets

What is Subtraction?
We all know that mastering addition is easier than grasping the concept of subtraction. Children can quickly put two things together to obtain a sum but they struggle with taking away one thing from another.
Subtraction forms the foundation of many advanced mathematical concepts. Therefore, before they hop on complex concepts, it is necessary that they have a firm grip on subtraction
In mathematics, subtraction is defined as taking away one thing from another. After subtraction, what remains in the group is less than what was present before subtraction. For example, If you take 3 away for 5 you will be left with 2. To express it mathematically, 6 – 4 =2
A simple subtraction problem usually has three parts. The part from which something is being taken away is known as minuend. The part which is being taken away is known as a subtrahend. The part that you are left with is known as difference. For example, 6 - 4=2, the number 6 is the minuend, 4 is the subtrahend and the number 2 is the difference.
Our subtraction sheets are found mostly mixed in with addition operations in our **basic math skills sheets**.

- Borrowing and Regrouping Subtraction - Students learn how to share the value between places.
- Decimal Subtraction - For most students paying attention to where the decimal point is, should be where they start.
- Decomposing Numbers Up To 20 - We show students remove values from a number in mirror subtraction skills.
- Fixed Integer Subtraction to 12 - A nice method to help you practice.
- Learning To Subtract - The most primitive form of this skill. This should be your starting point.
- Math Fact Families - We show how three values interrelate through a variety of options.
- Missing Digit Subtraction - A nice way to progress towards algebra.
- Number Line Subtraction - Students can see, through the use of a number line, the flow of a difference being calculated.
- Picture Subtraction - We forget about numbers and cross out values until we find out what is left over.
- Rapid Fire Horizontal Subtraction Math Facts - This means they are orientated in a left to right manner.
- Rapid Fire Vertical Subtraction Math Facts - You guessed it; they are layer one on top of the other in this section.
- Relating Addition and Subtraction (Fact Families) - We just focus on those two operations. It is good to see the interrelation of those two operations.
- Single Digit Subtraction - No greater than nine and no less than one.
- Subtracting Numbers with Figures - These are geometric figures, to be fully accurate.
- Subtraction and Unknown Addends (to 20) - Again, one step towards algebra problems.
- Subtraction with Dots - The dots could also be considered blocks by some.
- Simple Subtraction Word Problems - All the operations are differences in these story problems.
- One Digit from Two Digits Subtraction - Some borrowing and regrouping are required on these problems.
- Two Digit Subtraction - Eventually we hope students can perform these operations in the head.
- Two Digit from Three Digit Subtraction - Learn how to find these common calculations.
- Three from Three Digit Subtraction - You may need to borrow and regroup twice with these problems.
- Mixed Number Subtraction - We work to improve and review our skills with this topic.
- Four Digit Subtraction - We start getting into larger values.
- Five Digit Subtraction - Time to work with large differences.
- Add and Subtract Within 1000 - A nice review of both related operations.
- Add and Subtract Multi-Digit Whole Numbers - These are for practicing your math facts.
