This set of facts includes all the turn-around facts for facts of one more than and two more than. The answers to all of these facts will be 1 or 2. Students should use their knowledge of addition and fact families to solve these facts. For example, when solving 7-2, the student should ask, “What plus 2 equals 7?”.
Near doubles are also called the “doubles-plus-one” facts and include all combinations where one addend is one more than the other. There are 18 of these facts. When students realize that these are facts that have addends with a difference of 1 (1 + 2), (3+ 4), (5 + 6) etc. they simply double the smaller addend and add 1.
