Let's say you had 8 pennies. I gave you 4 more. How many pennies would you have altogether? (8 + 4 = ?)      
Let's say you had 7 pennies. I gave you somemore. Now you have 13 pennies. How many did I give you? (7 + ? = 13)      
Let's say you had some pennies. I gave you 6 more. Now you have 15 pennies. How many did you have? (? + 6 = 15)      
Seperate      
Let's say you had 11pennies. You gave 5 pennies to me. How many pennies do you have now? (11 - 5 = ?)      
Let's say you had 12 pennies. You gave some to me. Now you have 9 pennies. How many did you give to me?      
Let's say you had some penniew. You gave 5 to me. Now you have 9 pennies left. How many pennies did you have to start/begin with?      
Part-part whole      
Let's say you have 5 pennies and 10 nickels. How many coins would you have? (5 + 10 = ?)      
Let's say you have 13 coins.. Five coins are pennies and the rest are nickels. How many nickels do you have?      
Compare      
Let's say you have 11pennies and I have 8 pennies. How many more pennies would you have than I would? (11 - 8 = ? or 8 + ? = 11)      
Let's say you have 13 pennies and I have 9 pennies. How many fewer pennies would I have than you? (13 - 9 = ? or 9 + ? = 13)
