Addition using the formal Method

This week year 4 have been learning how to add 3 and 4 digit numbers together using the formal method. You have produced excellent work, however please ensure that you set your work out correctly. What can you do to improve your presentation and make less mistakes?

  • Use a ruler to underline your date and title.
  • Use a ones,tens, hundreds,thousands column.
  • Ensure when ‘carrying over’ that you put it directly under the column that you are carrying into.
