Free math worksheets for basic operations

This worksheet generator allows you to make worksheets for addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication of whole numbers and integers, including both horizontal and vertical forms (long division etc.), and simple equations with variables.

You can make worksheets for...

  • basic addition/subtraction facts
  • mental addition and subtraction (for example, whole hundreds)
  • multiplication tables, including missing factors
  • basic division facts, including with remainders
  • mental multiplication and division (for example, by powers of ten)
  • column-form addition and subtraction, including subtraction with or without regrouping
  • column-form multiplication (long multiplication)
  • long division
  • simple equations using either an empty line or a variable (choose missing addend/subtrahend/minuend/factor/dividend/divisor). This is usable from first grade up to pre-algebra/algebra 1!

All of this can be done either with positive whole numbers or integers (negative numbers) by choosing the range of numbers used. Experiment with the options to customize the worksheets as you like!

For example, you can add any amount of extra space for working out the problems, put a border around each problem, and choose the font and font size, which allows customizing the worksheets for students with visual problems or ADHD.

See below some example worksheet types. The generator can make an enormous variety of worksheets:

... and MANY MORE! You can find LOTS of ready-made links for various addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division worksheets on the grade-level pages: grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, and grade 6.

Value 1

How Value 1, Value 2, and Value 3 work:
  • In addition and/or subtraction:
    Value 1 and Value 2 are the two numbers to be added or subtracted, and Value 3 is the answer.
  • In multiplication:
    Value 1 is one factor, Value 2 is second factor, and Value 3 is the answer.
  • In division:
    Value 1 is the dividend, Value 2 is the divisor, and Value 3 is the answer.
  • In Multiplication/Division things are different:
    In this option, Value 3 is the largest number (the answer for multiplication, and the dividend for division). Values 1 and 2 are the other two numbers (factors in multiplication, and divisor & answer for division). I am sorry for this discrepancy; however it allows for you to make, for example, multiplication/division equations based on basic multiplication tables by setting values 1 and 2 both to be from 2 to 12.
Extra vertical space below the horizontally written problems:  lines

Extra vertical space below vertically written problems:  lines
Multiplication symbol: *    x    ∙     Division symbol:   /    ÷  
Exact division (no remainder) (division only)

No negative answers (subtraction only)

No regrouping in subtraction (borrowing) in any of the problems
Force regrouping in subtraction (borrowing) in all problems
Leave both boxes concerning regrouping unticked if you want problems with and without regrouping in the same worksheet.

Missing addend/subtrahend/minuend/factor/dividend/divisor problems
Use a variable instead of a blank line for the answer (horizontal problems only)

Switch the "="-sign randomly beginning/end (2 + 4 = ___ versus ___ = 2 + 4)
Switch value 1 and value 2 randomly
