1
=
6
 
          
+
  
=
            
 
   Orchid Box   DarkCyan Box   MediumTurquoise Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   OliveDrab Box  plus     DeepPink Box  equals     Orchid Box   DarkCyan Box   MediumTurquoise Box   DarkSlateBlue Box   OliveDrab Box   DeepPink Box

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


Here's another example:

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:

5 + 1 = 6
5 + 2 = 7
5 + 3 = 8
5 + 4 = 9
5 + 5 = 10
5 + 6 = 11
5 + 7 = 12
5 + 8 = 13
5 + 9 = 14
5 + 10 = 15
5 + 11 = 16
5 + 12 = 17


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.
