    Cool 1 + 1 = 2

    Hi,

    Are the following terms correct?

    1) One plus one equals two.

    2) to make a detailed multiplication, are these terms correct?

    3 X 15 = 45 --> 3 times 5 equals 15. I write 5 and I store (= correct?) 1. three times one equals three. 3 plus 1 equals four. so, three times fifteen equals forty-five.

    I store (= correct?) 1 [at school we said "carry one" -but terms change]

    Re: 1 + 1 = 2

    We said 'carry a one' too (raising a thumb if we weren't using writing it down). Also (because it's easily reinforceable by gesture, when teaching a young child) "keep the 1 in your head" [pointing].

    But as you say, the terminology may have changed now. As they use calculators from a (ridiculously) early age, they may well say 'store'.
