Basic Addition Lesson 6: Number 6

Here's an easy example:

6
+
1
=
7
 
            
+
  
=
              
 
   YellowGreen Box   Gold Box   Tan Box   SaddleBrown Box   DarkBlue Box   LimeGreen Box  plus     Plum Box  equals     YellowGreen Box   Gold Box   Tan Box   SaddleBrown Box   DarkBlue Box   LimeGreen Box   Plum Box

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


Here's another example:

6
+
2
=
8
 
            
+
    
=
                
 

We start with six boxes, add two boxes, and now have eight boxes.

6
+
3
=
 
            
+
      
=
                  
 

We start with six boxes, add three boxes, and now have nine 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:

6 + 1 = 7
6 + 2 = 8
6 + 3 = 9
6 + 4 = 10
6 + 5 = 11
6 + 6 = 12
6 + 7 = 13
6 + 8 = 14
6 + 9 = 15
6 + 10 = 16
6 + 11 = 17
6 + 12 = 18


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.
