This worksheet is a great introduction to two digit vertical addition, showing students how to set out correctly, place value and strategies such as adding ones forst then tens. There is NO trading in these equations. Once students have a firm understanding of two digit addition, then you can move onto three and four digit to emphasis correct format for setting out, place value of numbers to 10 000 and correct strategies for solving vertical additions-beginning at the Ones. After checking their answers with a calculator, the final part of this worksheet is to put the numbers into a calculator which will reveal the magic word that will make the Addition Magician disappear. It kept our kids engaged for the whole session and they were excited to get through the equations in order to work out the calculator word.
We hope you enjoy the Addition Magician range - more to come!
