Addition Strategies
Adding with 0~ When you add a zero the number stays the same Ex. 8+0=8
Adding with 1~ Count up from the highest number 1 time Ex. 8+1=9
Counting On~Circle the greatest number. Store that number in your head. Put the smallest number on your fingers and count on. Ex. 6+2= Place the 6 in your head and put up two fingers. Count on 6, 7, 8~ 6+2=8
Doubles~Memorize 1+1=2, 2+2=4, 3+3=6, 4+4=8, 5+5=10, 6+6=12, 7+7=14, 8+8=16, 9+9=18
Doubles +1 Also known as Step Brothers~ Put a line next to the least number. Double that number and step up one time Examples 3+4=7 (Double the three so 3+3=6 and step up once 7) 6+7=13 (Double the six so 6+6=12 and step up once to get 13)
