How to add numbers together

To add numbers together you can use a variety of written methods such as the column method, or a number line; or you could use a mental arithmetic method.

Resources for physically adding numbers together could include: an abacus, a 100 square, Cuisinaire rods, Numicon, Base 10 or simply use cubes or counters.

 Try using more than one method and practice checking your answers with a calculator.


Government guidelines (Year 4)

      Pupils should be taught to:

  • add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate

  • estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation

  • solve addition and subtraction two-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.
