Word Problems: Extra Facts Addition and Subtraction Word Problems
Mixed operation addition and subtraction word problem worksheets with extra unused facts in the problems.
The worksheets in this section combine both addition word problems and subtraction word problems on the same worksheet, so students not only need to solve the problem but they need to figure out exactly which operation is used to do it as well.
These worksheets are slightly more complex because the problems on these worksheets include information unnecessary for calculating the answer. Students will need to understand exactly which facts are pertinent to the question being asked, and know when they can discard a specific fact given in the problem description. This prevents students from simply determining what operation is needed to solve a problem given based on a keyword showing up because some of the information isn't important to finding the correct answer.
