Interactive Math Lesson - Addition with 3 or 4 Addends

Try this interactive math activity with your students to help them practice addition with three or four addends. In this math activity geared toward a fourth-grade level, students will practice adding with three or four addends to build confidence and proficiency with their addition skills. Questions in this online math game are presented as word problems, horizontal addition problems, and vertical addition problems. Children will fill in the blank with the correct answer.

Want to get a glimpse of the types of questions your students may be asked in this fourth-grade addition lesson? Here are a few examples: Students may be given a vertical addition problem with the following addends: 583 + 1,181 + 1,798 + 544. Or students may be given a horizontal addition problem instead: 8,907 + 192 + 7,279 + 659. Alternatively, students may be given an addition word problem like this one: "Liko and his friends spent Saturday afternoon playing games at Arcade Craze. Liko won 759 tickets, Abigail won 5,866 tickets, Kaitlyn won 300 tickets, and Wesley won 521 tickets. How many tickets did they win combined?" If students need a little extra help solving an addition problem, they can click on the "Hint" button. They will be given a helpful clue, such as "Step 1: Add the ones" or "Step 2: Add the tens." When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them how to solve the problem correctly, so they can move through the lesson having learned from past mistakes.

Every math lesson on I Know It is designed with students' success in mind! You'll find our math lessons, including this online addition activity, equipped with handy features that help students make the most of their math practice session. For example, a progress-tracker shows students how many questions they have answered out of the total number of questions in the practice activity, while a score-tracker lets them see how many points they have earned in the lesson so far. A speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen indicates the read-aloud option; students can click the button and have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is an excellent resource for ESL/ELL students and children who excel with auditory learning. Our math activities set students up for success!
