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
 
  
+
  
=
    
 
   DarkViolet Box  plus     Pink Box  equals     DarkViolet Box   Pink Box

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


Here's another example:

1
+
2
=
3
 
  
+
    
=
      
 
   Pink Box  plus     Magenta Box   MediumBlue Box  equals     Pink Box   Magenta Box   MediumBlue Box

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


Try this problem.

1
+
3
=
 
 
  
+
      
=
        
 
   DarkGreen Box  plus     MediumSpringGreen Box   Indigo Box   DodgerBlue Box  equals     DarkGreen Box   MediumSpringGreen Box   Indigo Box   DodgerBlue 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.
