# Intro to addition

In this lesson, you will learn addition.

## What is addition?

Addition is, bringing two or more numbers (or things) together to make a new total. When you add two numbers or things you are counting them together. You use addition every day in life.

I have 1 circle.

And I add 1 more circle.

Now I have two circles.

In total, I have two circles

Now, let’s try with math symbols or numerals.

Using Math symbols or numbers it is:

1 + 1 = 2

In words it is:

” one plus one equals two “

## Adding 2 + 3

Now, let’s try with bigger numbers

You have 3 blue circles.

And I have 2 purple circles.

Together we have 5 circles.

3 + 2 = 5

When we add 3 and 2 we get 5

When you add two numbers together you find how many you have in all.

More Examples:

1 + 2 = 3 | 4 + 1 = 5 | 3 + 3 = 6 | 4 + 4 = 8 |

2 + 2 = 4 | 1 + 4 = 5 | 2 + 5 = 7 | 5 + 1 = 6 |
