Single Digit Subtraction Worksheets

Welcome to our single digit subtraction worksheets!

Understanding how to perform single-digit subtraction is a foundational mathematical skill. When a child can quickly and confidently subtract single-digit numbers it makes double and triple-digit subtraction much easier later on. Also, subtraction paves the way for division, so it’s important to create a firm foundation early.

Subtraction is simply “taking away” or “finding the difference.” In the worksheets below, you’ll find subtraction problems written horizontally (side-to-side) as well as vertically (up and down). It’s important for children to see and practice subtraction both ways.
