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
 
  
+
  
=
    
 
   Thistle Box  plus     Olive Box  equals     Thistle Box   Olive Box

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


Here's another example:

1
+
2
=
3
 
  
+
    
=
      
 
   Olive Box  plus     MidnightBlue Box   DarkKhaki Box  equals     Olive Box   MidnightBlue Box   DarkKhaki Box

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


Try this problem.

1
+
3
=
 
 
  
+
      
=
        
 
   Sienna Box  plus     HotPink Box   RoyalBlue Box   OliveDrab Box  equals     Sienna Box   HotPink Box   RoyalBlue Box   OliveDrab 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.
