Use Addition Algorithms to Enhance Your Math Curriculum...
An Interactive Math Activity to Help Build Addition Skills and Place Value Concepts...


The algorithm shown above is helpful to students who are working toward mastery of place value concepts. It is a helpful method especially because it starts with adding the most significant digits first.

Help Kids Better Understand Place Value and Multi-Digit Addition!

The Addition Algorithms app introduces students to a research based approach to solving addition problems. It steps students through the two different procedures for adding multi-digit numbers.

This app challenges the player to find the answer to a multi-digit addition problems. Completing the activities involves placing digits into the cells of a grid showing the steps of the selected algorithm. The Addition Algorithms app is designed to be a quick math exercise that teachers can use to provide practice in problem solving.

Special sound effects make the game fun to use and the interactive design facilitate problem solving strategies.

Special features make using the Addition Algorithms app fun:

1. Slide numbers into place to find the given sum.

2. Random problems are automatically generated.

3. Speech and sound effects.

4. Available for iPad iOS, and Macintosh.

This algorithm is more traditional and involves using regroup where appropriate. When regrouping is required a small +1 is shown at the top of the column.
