Use BondTastic to learn number bonds, and make simple sums instantly recognizable.
Number bonds (aka simple addition facts) are simple sums that use addition and subtraction. Having learnt number bonds, a person can instantly answer a sum, without having to work it out. For example, having learned number bonds, given the following sums for a number bond to 10
7 + ? = 10
10 - ? = 7
10 – 7 = ?
a person can instantly tell you that the answer in each case is 3, without having to count or use other strategies to work it out.
Once number bonds have been mastered, there is no need to think about the answer to simple sums – the answer is there right away. Useful in itself, this also paves the way to doing more complicated sums with ease.
Most of all BondTastic is about having fun whilst learning.
