Basic Addition Lesson 1: Number 1

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
 
  
+
  
=
    
 
   Gold Box  plus     Sienna Box  equals     Gold Box   Sienna Box

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


Here's another example:

1
+
2
=
3
 
  
+
    
=
      
 
   Sienna Box  plus     Tan Box   DarkOrange Box  equals     Sienna Box   Tan Box   DarkOrange Box

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


Try this problem.

1
+
3
=
 
 
  
+
      
=
        
 
   OliveDrab Box  plus     Thistle Box   Plum Box   Yellow Box  equals     OliveDrab Box   Thistle Box   Plum Box   Yellow Box

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


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
