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
 
  
+
  
=
    
 
   DarkSeaGreen Box  plus     MediumOrchid Box  equals     DarkSeaGreen Box   MediumOrchid Box

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


Here's another example:

1
+
2
=
3
 
  
+
    
=
      
 
   MediumOrchid Box  plus     DarkSlateBlue Box   DarkOrange Box  equals     MediumOrchid Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   DarkOrange Box

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


Try this problem.

1
+
3
=
 
 
  
+
      
=
        
 
   MediumBlue Box  plus     DeepSkyBlue Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   HotPink Box  equals     MediumBlue Box   DeepSkyBlue Box   MediumSeaGreen Box   HotPink 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.
