Addition Worksheets

Addition Tips - Learning to add numbers is one of the essential techniques that kids need to master. There are several ways that students can use to make addition easier. Here, we have discussed some of the tips that can help your child in doing addition efficiently. BENCHMARK - Benchmark is the technique of adding single digits numbers. We use a number as a resting number in the middle of the problem, often a multiple of ten is used. Suppose we want to add 15 and 8. The benchmark technique will work as follows 15 + 8. The multiple of ten is 20, so we can split 8 into 5 and 3. 15 + 5 + 3. First, we will add 15 and 5 to get to our benchmark of 20. 20 + 3 Then complete your sum. 20 +3 = 23 BREAKING PLACE VALUES - Breaking numbers by place values make addition simpler. Students can break the number by tens and ones and then adding the number to get the result For instance, if we consider 36+72, we will split both the numbers in tens and ones. 36 will split in 30 and 6 while 72 will break into 70 and 2. 36 = 30 +6 = 72= 70+2 Adding 30 with 70, and 6 with 2. 30 + 70, 6 + 2 = 100 + 8 = 108. In addition (pun totally intended) to the sheets here you will also find mixed addition materials in our basic math operations worksheets. That is determined by the core standards. We have added a very healthy offering below to supplement to the core material and provide you with lots of practice.
