Here's an easy example:

5
+
1
=
6
 
          
+
  
=
            
 
   Cyan Box   MidnightBlue Box   Pink Box   Brown Box   Orchid Box  plus     OliveDrab Box  equals     Cyan Box   MidnightBlue Box   Pink Box   Brown Box   Orchid Box   OliveDrab Box

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


Here's another example:

5

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.
