  • my child needs to give an addition sentence that has only one pair of addends.
    for example,a repeated addend: 5 + 5 = 10
    but i don't know how to express an only one pair of addends

  • How was the homework described or explained to the child? I this the only question? Can you gather more information from other problems? Addends are the numbers being added together, right? So one pair is only two numbers like the example you give of 5+5, correct? Wouldn't any math problem with two numbers added together be correct? Like 4+5, 8+3, etc, etc? Each of those is one pair of addends, I think. It's not a big deal if your child gets one wrong. But it is a concern if others do the work for her/him and she/he does not ask for help and let the teacher know she/he needs help.

  • actually,there are two more questions other than that and what you just said just came to my mind also but im doubting what if im wrong.thats why im gathering more opinions from others.
    here are the other problems:
    -a sum equal to one of its addends-
    -a sum equal to both addends-
    my child only needs to give the addition sentence to that 3 problems.tnx for your comment.thats a big help!

  • 0+7=7

    0+0=0

    Remember to teach the child how these are right (or wrong!) or otherwise she/he won't learn. GL
