Solving Addition Problems

1.  Number Bonds

  • (to 10) 6 + 4 = 10, 8 + 2 = 10
  • (to 20) 16 + 4 = 20, 18 + 2 = 20

 

2.  Making 10

  • 14 + 5 = 10 + 4 + 5 = 19
  • 11 + 7 = 10 + 1  + 7 = 18  

 

3.  Commutative property

  • 12 + 4 = 16, 4 + 12 = 16  
  • 7 + 5 = 12, 5 + 7 = 12

 

4.  Doubles

  • 8 + 8 = 16  
  • 11 + 11 = 22  

 

5.  Near Doubles

  • 13 + 13 + 1 = 27, 14 + 14 -1 = 27  
  • 7 + 7 + 1 = 15, 8 + 8 – 1 = 15
