What is Addition & Subtraction Math Fact Family?
A fact family is a group of math facts using the same numbers. So you can use 2 + 3 =5 for addition and 5 – 3 = 2 for subtraction. They are using the same fact family numbers for the equations. Fact families are a fun way to work on math.
This printable works on fact families and how you can use them for addition and subtraction.
