This program uses the number line to help the student understand addition. For instance, if the problem is 6 + 2 = ?, the program will tell the student to click on the first number (6) and a yellow bar will highlight all the spaces on the number line up to the 6. The program will then tell the student to click on each of the next 2 numbers to the right of the 6. These next 2 spaces will be highlighted in red, and will show that the answer to the problem is 8. After clicking on these two numbers, the student will be told to click on the Done button. This program adds only single-digit numbers.
