Bar Modelling Worksheet - Comparison Model Questions
This is the second in a series of worksheet sets on Bar Modelling from the White Rose Maths Hub.

This set contains 3 worksheets.

The first introduces students to the bar model comparison diagrams and students have to find missing values. All of the questions involve addition and subtraction within 100. The worksheet also gets students to see the link between words in a question and then how this is represented in the diagrams.

The second worksheet uses the bar model to solve word questions. The first few questions ask students to complete the diagrams and in later ones students then have to draw their own.

The final worksheet is a series of more challenging questions that should make students think. Many of the problems are multi-step. For each question students should use a bar model to solve. Question 2 on this sheet shows a slight adaptation of the comparison model. These will be explored in more detail in a later set.

All sheets are addition and subtraction within 100. This worksheet can be used with students in primary and secondary to get them used to the bar model comparison diagrams. All the answers are supplied also.

If you have any comments about the sheets please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Hub. It is only with your comments that we can improve what we do.
