# Use number facts to add

The ArithmeKit 4 5, published by Buzzard Publishing in 2016, is a comprehensive tool designed to enhance the arithmetic skills of young learners. It presents a series of exercises that encourage the use of number facts to solve addition problems. The kit includes activities such as finding matching pairs, where students must pair sums with their correct answers, and 'What's missing?' challenges that task students with creating their own matching pairs problems. For example, students are asked to calculate the sum of 0.05 + 0.07 and find its matching pair from a list of possible answers.

The exercises progress to more complex addition problems, where students must calculate sums like 3 + 4 and 30 + 40, and compare the results to notice patterns in the numbers. There are also 'Fill in the missing digit' puzzles that test the student's ability to use the digits 0 through 9 to complete a set of statements correctly. Additionally, the kit prompts learners to use practical resources to understand why certain statements, such as "0.6 + 0.7 equals 0.13," are never true. This hands-on approach not only reinforces the learning of basic addition but also encourages critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
