Let's look at 7 + 3 = 10. The seven and the three are addends. A near double addend would be 10 + 11= 21. The importance of near double addends is being able to add numbers in your head quickly. You could break 10 +11 into 10 + 10 + 1 and be able to quickly be able to calculate it to 21.

Dardenella and Crafty, my son doesn't bring home a math book. I have to figure out a few of his math problems on my own or ask others that might know. I seriously doubt that the question on the homework is "What is a near double addend?", so it's not like you are doing the homework for them.

So, I as a parent can't help him learn it? His homework packet isn't turned in until the end of the week and we were told to check over all the problems and to not send it back in until everything is correct. For the most part, it's not that he doesn't know how to do it, it's that he doesn't know how to do it the "new" way. I was in the elementary education program before all the new ways of teaching math came out, so even I have to google or ask some of my teacher friends how to do something.

How does the teacher know that the kids didn't really get what they were supposed to out of a lesson?
By their assignments that they do in class.
