Mathematical Development - Visual Addition Tutorial

This video demonstrates how addition of 2 digit numbers can be achieved using visual representations.  In this example a drawing is completed for each 2 digit number.  The long block represents a 10 and the small block represents a unit.  Once a drawing is complete for both numbers, the 10s blocks are added and then the units are counted.  These visual representations help the child and are particularly useful for more tricky sums including those that break 10s and 100s.
