Welcome to Basic Addition. In this unit, you will learn how to add numbers from one to twelve and also zero. FoxyMath wishes you success!

Here's an easy example:

1
+
1
=
2

+

=

GreenYellow Box  plus     Wheat Box  equals     GreenYellow Box   Wheat Box

We start with one box, add one box, and now have two boxes.

Here's another example:

1

2
=
3

+

=

In order to do basic addition, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! When you are finished with this lesson, you will know the following equations:

1 + 1 = 2
1 + 2 = 3
1 + 3 = 4
1 + 4 = 5
1 + 5 = 6
1 + 6 = 7
1 + 7 = 8
1 + 8 = 9
1 + 9 = 10
1 + 10 = 11
1 + 11 = 12
1 + 12 = 13

The following exercise will help you learn the above equations and what they mean. Please take your time: take whatever time you need to learn the material.
