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
 
  
+
  
=
    
 
   DarkGoldenrod Box  plus     SaddleBrown Box  equals     DarkGoldenrod Box   SaddleBrown Box

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


Here's another example:

1
+
2
=
3
 
  
+
    
=
      
 
   SaddleBrown Box  plus     Blue Box   DarkKhaki Box  equals     SaddleBrown Box   Blue Box   DarkKhaki Box

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


Try this problem.

1
+
3
=
 
 
  
+
      
=
        
 
   MediumSpringGreen Box  plus     DarkTurquoise Box   Orchid Box   BlueViolet Box  equals     MediumSpringGreen Box   DarkTurquoise Box   Orchid Box   BlueViolet 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

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.
