Here's an easy example:

2
+
1
=
3
 
    
+
  
=
      
 
   Aquamarine Box   DarkGreen Box  plus     DarkGreen Box  equals     Aquamarine Box   DarkGreen Box   MediumVioletRed Box

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


Here's another example:

2
+
2
=
4
 
    
+
    
=
        
 
   DarkSlateBlue Box   RosyBrown Box  plus     SaddleBrown Box   DarkBlue Box  equals     DarkSlateBlue Box   RosyBrown Box   SaddleBrown Box   DarkBlue Box

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:

2 + 1 = 3
2 + 2 = 4
2 + 3 = 5
2 + 4 = 6
2 + 5 = 7
2 + 6 = 8
2 + 7 = 9
2 + 8 = 10
2 + 9 = 11
2 + 10 = 12
2 + 11 = 13
2 + 12 = 14


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.
