An animated teaching presentation focused on the addition algorithm.
Use this editable teaching presentation with your students when explaining how to use the addition algorithm.
The Algorithm: Step-by-step
Teaching the addition algorithm can be the daunting next step for some students when learning how to add larger numbers. This presentation aims to step through the process using a conversational approach.

Encourage students to use their favourite mental addition strategies when appropriate.
View the presentation in ‘Slide Show’ mode to experience the fun animations that help reinforce the concept of ‘carrying’. The numbers literally get carried into their correct positions!
You can refer to these animations when students are working independently, e.g. “Remember when the ten was trying to sneak into the ones column? Make sure you carry the ten into the tens column.”
