Adding by Making 10

The "Make 10" strategy is used in Singapore Math for addition within 20. Using the idea of number bonds, the students have already been trained to recognize patterns of numbers that make 10.
1 and 9 makes 10
2 and 8 makes 10
3 and 7 makes 10
4 and 6 makes 10
5 and 5 makes 10

This pattern is then used to add other numbers.

For example,
8 + 6 is rewritten as 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14

With sufficient practice, the students should be able to do the math in their heads.

Adding Tens and Ones

When adding 2-digit numbers, the Singapore Math teaches the students to add tens and ones.

For example, 53 + 28 = ?

Step 1: Use Number bond to split. 53 = 50 +3, 28 = 20 + 8
Step 2: Add the tens. 50 + 20 = 70
Step 3: Add the ones. 3 + 8 = 11
Step 4: 70 + 11 = 81
Step 5: 53 + 28 = 81
