Counting on is a strategy for solving simple addition problems. For example, a student can add 6 and 4 by counting on from 6, saying ‘7, 8, 9, 10’. If students are asked how many more objects need to be added to a collection of 8 to give a total of 13, they can count ‘9, 10, 11, 12, 13’ to find the answer 5.
