One cake has 12 candles and the other has 6. How many candles are there altogether?


My friend said that to add these altogether you should just count all of them one at a time. Is this the best strategy?


Look at the strategy below, making 10 and counting in ones. 


Which makes more sense – breaking apart 4 or breaking apart 13 to make 10? 

It makes more sense to break apart 13 then we can add the ones.
