Understand the concept of adding 1-digit number with the help of objects as well as numbers.

Counting Forward:

We have learnt that counting forward means addition. Here is a frog moving forward on a number line. The frog starts from number 3 and moves 2 steps forward. The frog is now on 5.

Look at the picture below, in a park Aaron is standing near the pole which has number 6 on it.

He goes forward 3 steps to meet Shelly who is standing near the pole which has number 9 on it.

We learnt how we can add numbers by counting forward. If we want to add 5 to 2, start from 2 and take 5 jumps forward.

This can be written as:

Addition: Forward Counting on a Number Strip:

To find out 4 + 3, put your finger on 4 and move 3 steps forward.

You reach 7.

So, 4 + 3 = 7

To find out 2 + 4, put your finger on 2 and move 4 steps forward.

You reach 6.

So, 2 + 4 = 6

 Fill in the boxes.

(i) 5 + 1 =

(ii) 2 + 3 =

(iii) 3 + 3 =

(iv) 3 + 6 =

(v) 6 + 3 =

(vi) 7 + 2 =

(vii) 4 + 4 =

(viii) 5 + 4 =

(ix) 3 + 5 =

So, 4 + 3 = 7

So, 6 + 2 = 8

Add by counting forward and fill in the boxes.

Fill in the blanks:

You have two chocolates. I gave you one. How many will you have? There are 3 chocolates in all. Here the sign = stands for ‘are equal to’. Now two marbles and one marble taken together make three marbles. Thant means if you add 1 to 2, you have 3.

If I give you two chocolates and you have two chocolates, how any will you have? You have now four chocolates. 2 and 2 added together make 4.

Now you have two chocolates and I gave you three. How many will you have? You have 5 chocolates. 2 and 3 added together make 5.

If you have three chocolates and I give you three more, how many will you have? You have now 6 chocolates. 3 and 3 added together make 6.

If Mike has five chocolates and you give him four more, he will have 9 chocolates. Count them. 5 and 4 added together make 9.

In addition we have learnt that when two things and four things are taken together they make six things. The two things and four things are then said to be added together. Thus two and four added together make six.

In arithmetic this is written in a short way as follow:

2 + 4 = 6

The sign or symbol + is called the plus sign and means that the numbers 2 and 4 on either side of it are to be added together.

The sign or symbol = means ‘are’ or ‘is equal to’. Here it tells us that when the numbers 2 and 4 are added together we get 6.

We may read 2 + 4 = 6 as ‘two and four are six’ or we can also say ‘two plus four is equal to six’.

Zero: If you have no chocolates at all, you have zero chocolates.

Zero is written like this 0 and means not any or nothing. If you add 5 to 0, it is still 5. If you add 0 to any number the sum is the same as the number itself.

Regrouping the Numbers:

Regrouping Ones

When the sum of the digits in ones place is more than 9, then we regroup the number in tens and ones.

Lets Regroup the following:

Let us add 5 and 8.

 Add 5 ones and 8 ones5 ones + 8 ones = 13 ones13 ones = 1 ten + 3 ones Write 3 in ones place and carry 1 ten to tens place.

Let us study the properties of addition.

Order of Numbers:

Therefore, 4 + 3 = 7 and 3 + 4 = 7

Fill in the blanks:

Therefore, 2 + 6 = 8 and 6 + 2 = 8

When two numbers are added, their sum remains the same,even if the order of the numbers is changed.

What do you get when you add 0 to a number?

We see there are 4 beads in a string.
and 0 beads in another string.

Therefore, 4 + 0 = 4

When 0 is added to a number, the sum is the number itself.

What do you get when you add 1 to a number?

We see there are 5 stars and 1 star is added to it.

Therefore, 5 + 1 = 6

When 1 is added to a number, the sum is the next number.

You have learnt that when two things and three things are taken together they make five things. The two things and three things are then said to be added together. Thus two and three added together make five. In arithmetic this is written in a short way as follows:-

2 + 3 = 5

The sign + is called the plus sign and means that the numbers 2 and 3 on either side of it are to be added together.

The sign = means 'are' or 'is equal to'. Here it tells us that when the numbers 2 and 3 are added together we get 5.

We may read 2 + 3 = 5 as 'two and three are five' or 'two plus three is equal to five'.

Example:

I have 6 marbles. Nitheeya gave me one and Nairitee gave me 2 more. How many marbles have I in all?

6 marbles and 1 marble are 7 marbles; 7 marbles and 2 marbles are 9 marbles. Therefore the answer is 9 marbles.

This addition sum may be written down in either of the following ways:-

 6 + 1 + 2 = 9               or 6            1     +     2             9

In the first way of writing the sum, the numbers are all in a row, that is, in a line across the page from left to right. In the second way the numbers are written in a column, that is, in a line down the page; the answer is written at the bottom.

Note that in the first way, after writing 6 + 1 + 2 we can add the numbers either from left to right (6 and 1 are 7, 7 and 2 are 9) or from right to left (2 and 1 are 3, 3 and 6 are 9). By doing it both ways we check our answer.

Again, when the numbers are written in a column, we can add either downwards (6 and 1 are 7, 7 and 2 are 9) or upwards (2 and 1 are 3, 3 and 6 are 9), thus checking the answer.

Let us find 4 + 7 using the grid. For this,

look for 4 on the leftmost column and circle it,

look for 7 in the topmost row and circle it, and

draw arrows from 4 and 7.

The arrows meet at 11.

So, 4 + 7 = 11

1. Look at the grid above and add as shown.

(i) 9 + 8 = ___

(ii) 7 + 6 = ___

(iii) 6 + 7 = ___

(iv) 8 + 7 = ___

(v) 5 + 8 = ___

(vi) 9 + 6 = ___

2. Add and fill the coloured boxes in the grid as shown.

1. Numbers can be added in any order.

For example, 2 + 5 = 5 + 2 = 7

2. When we add 0 to a number, the sum is the number itself.

For example, 2 + 0 = 2 and 5 + 0 = 5

We can also say that adding 0 to a number does not change its value.

3. When we add 1 to a number, the sum is the successor of that number.

For example, 2 + 1 = 3 and 5 + 1 = 6

1. Add the following by Regrouping:

(i) 9 + 6

(ii) 6 + 5

(iii) 9 + 2
