00:00:01.985 --> 00:00:04.445
Find the missing addition sentence.
00:00:05.595 --> 00:00:07.575
Zero plus six is six.
00:00:08.275 --> 00:00:10.235
One plus five is six.
00:00:10.975 --> 00:00:12.615
Two plus four is six.
00:00:12.855 --> 00:00:14.405
Three plus three is six.
00:00:14.685 --> 00:00:16.565
Four plus two is six.
00:00:17.275 --> 00:00:18.225
What?
00:00:19.315 --> 00:00:20.835
And we have four possible answers.
00:00:21.405 --> 00:00:23.405
Four plus one is six.
00:00:23.915 --> 00:00:25.725
Four plus two is five.
00:00:26.335 --> 00:00:28.395
Five plus one is six.
00:00:28.855 --> 00:00:30.635
And four plus one is five.
00:00:32.105 --> 00:00:35.175
In this question, we’re given some addition sentences.
00:00:36.165 --> 00:00:40.745
These are written using numbers, but they’re also modeled using cubes.
00:00:40.745 --> 00:00:43.575
And we can see both orange and green cubes here.
00:00:44.555 --> 00:00:50.835
The first line of cubes shows no green cubes and six orange cubes.
00:00:51.735 --> 00:00:55.185
That’s where we get our number sentence zero plus six from.
00:00:55.875 --> 00:01:04.055
We can think of the first number as being the number of green cubes that we can see and the second number as being the number of orange cubes that we can see.
00:01:04.955 --> 00:01:10.285
And because the length of each line of cubes is the same each time, these are always going to make six.
00:01:11.275 --> 00:01:13.715
Zero plus six is six.
00:01:14.395 --> 00:01:17.665
We can also see that one plus five is six.
00:01:18.505 --> 00:01:21.825
Two green cubes and four orange cubes make six.
00:01:22.915 --> 00:01:26.325
If we add together three of each type of cube, we get six.
00:01:27.025 --> 00:01:29.245
Four plus two make six.
00:01:29.865 --> 00:01:32.665
But then we come to a missing addition sentence.
00:01:33.285 --> 00:01:36.055
And the question asks us to find out what it is.
00:01:36.935 --> 00:01:39.865
What can we say about this missing addition sentence?
00:01:40.675 --> 00:01:47.665
Well, firstly, we can say that we’re looking for two numbers that we need to add together, just like all the other addition sentences.
00:01:48.395 --> 00:01:52.245
We can also say that we’re looking for a number sentence that gives the answer six.
00:01:52.825 --> 00:01:57.515
If we look at our line of cubes, we can see that there are six cubes just like all the others.
00:01:58.425 --> 00:02:02.245
So which two numbers can we find that make six?
00:02:03.635 --> 00:02:07.465
If we look at the numbers in each addition, we can see some patterns.
00:02:08.125 --> 00:02:14.245
The first number in each addition, which is the number of green cubes, increases by one each time.
00:02:15.095 --> 00:02:19.565
If we read each of the first numbers, we can see zero, one, two, three, four.
00:02:20.385 --> 00:02:23.755
If we’re increasing by one each time, what’s going to come after four?
00:02:24.415 --> 00:02:27.815
We’d expect to see the number five.
00:02:29.355 --> 00:02:32.275
Should we count our green squares to see whether that’s correct?
00:02:32.775 --> 00:02:37.265
One, two, three, four.
00:02:37.265 --> 00:02:40.005
Yes, there are five green squares.
00:02:40.955 --> 00:02:47.845
And if we look at the second number in each addition, which is the number of orange squares, we can see that these decrease by one each time.
00:02:47.845 --> 00:02:48.775
They get smaller.
00:02:49.005 --> 00:02:51.195
Six, five, four, three, two.
00:02:51.235 --> 00:02:52.495
What comes after two?
00:02:53.145 --> 00:02:53.845
One.
00:02:54.835 --> 00:02:57.375
How many orange squares are in our line of cubes?
00:02:58.455 --> 00:02:58.915
One.
00:02:59.915 --> 00:03:05.485
So we would expect our missing addition sentence to say five and one is six.
00:03:06.365 --> 00:03:08.625
Can you see that as one of our possible choices?
00:03:09.305 --> 00:03:10.595
Yes, here it is.
00:03:11.175 --> 00:03:13.605
Five plus one is six.
00:03:14.385 --> 00:03:18.995
Using cubes like this is a really good way to model all the possible ways to make a number.
00:03:19.635 --> 00:03:22.115
In fact, there is only one other way that isn’t shown.
00:03:22.765 --> 00:03:27.435
A line of just green cubes would show us that six plus zero is six too.
00:03:28.425 --> 00:03:30.475
But we don’t need to know this to answer the question.
00:03:31.535 --> 00:03:37.825
The missing addition sentence from the picture that we were shown is five plus one is six.
