2. Add up the right-most column.
3. If your total is less than ten, write the total under the column.
4. Go to the next column to the left and add up the numbers – and add any numbers you’ve written below this column.

### How do you calculate addition quickly?

1. Count From A Number Upwards. Example: 6 + 3.
2. Jump Strategy. We can also count by 2s or 10s, or make any “jumps” we want to help us solve a calculation.
4. Do The Tens Last.
5. Aim for Ten.
6. Compensation Method.

Basic addition is a step on from counting and usually picked up easily by learners. For example, if a learner is given two piles of cards, one pile containing 4 cards and the other containing 3 cards, they can count all the cards and come up with the answer: 7.

3. Multiplying 5 times any number

1. Step 1: Subtract one from the number being multiplied by 5, in this instance the number 3 becomes the number 2.
2. Step 2: Now halve the number 2, which makes it the number 1. Make 5 the last digit. The number produced is 15, which is the answer.

Addition forms a major part of the work carried out in Year 1 and the progress made this year is vital for future success. • understand and use the addition (+) and the equals (=) signs • understand and use terms such as: more, sum, total and altogether • add mentally two one-digit numbers (e.g. 4 + 7)
