Free maths worksheet: standard written method of addition of 2-digits

Free maths worksheet from mathsblog.

This is the first maths worksheet on addition using the standard method.

It must be pointed out that usually 2-digit addition should be tackled ‘in your head’. The example on the first page can be done by adding 50 to 76, making 126 and then subtracting 1 making 125. However, to practise the written method it is often useful to keep to smaller numbers so that children gain confidence with the new method

The method is to add the units first, put the units in the answer, and ‘carry’ the ten into the tens column. Then add the tens. A more detailed description of the method to use is on the first page of the worksheets.
