### Why Learning Addition is Important

In math, addition is the process of combining two numbers with a numerical value to create a new number. For example, if we started with "1+1" we would sum them up to get "2". This is a very important skill in life as it can be used for many things such as figuring out how much money you have or how much food you need to buy at the store.

The concept of addition is introduced to young children early in their education, many times by the time they are 2 or 3 years old. Children need to learn addition because it builds an understanding of quantity. The basic way that children are taught to add is by putting together two items and counting how many objects they have altogether. For example, if you have one apple and then you add one more apple to make two apples, then your total number of apples should be two.

### How to Learn Addition Quickly and Easily with These 2 Simple Tricks

The first thing you want to do is to try and learn addition via rote memorization. This method can take a long time and it may not be as effective as other methods. The second method is to use the numberline trick, which is easier and faster than rote memorization.

The number line trick is a way of visually representing numbers in your head so that you can immediately see if two numbers are the same or not. By using this technique you should already be able to tell if 10 + 5 = 15 or 30 + 10 = 40, but it gets much more difficult as the amount of numbers increases.
