Addition basic facts

New Zealand Curriculum: Level 2

Learning Progression Frameworks: Additive thinking, Signpost 4 to Signpost 4

Target students

These activities are intended for students who currently count on and back to solve addition and subtraction problems with whole numbers to 20.

Target students should have already developed a degree of part-whole understanding in addition and subtraction contexts (joining and separating). They should have some number facts to call on, particularly number bonds to ten. Understanding of two-digit place value, including the structure of ‘teen’ numbers is supportive to many to the activities described in this intervention. (show diagnostic questions)
