In this case the ‘bonds’ are just any two numbers that add to 10. \n \nNumber bonds provide a mental picture of the relationship between 2 numbers. These mental pictures are the key to enabling children to do mental arithmetic. Knowing addition number bonds means that children will understand subtraction with ease. If they know that 3+4 = 7 they will quickly realise that when they see 7-4 = ?, the answer is 3 because by a process of elimination 3 is the missing number in this number bond. It helps children to see that subtraction is a mirror image of addition. They begin to see the patterns in numbers and to learn mathematical principles rather than having to memorise each individual sum. Number bonds are the foundation blocks your child needs to progress with maths.
