One More: Numbers up to 10

In this video, we’re going to learn
how to find one more than a number. We’re going to do this by adding
one more object to a group and then counting the new number that we have.

Let’s start with a line of
fish. How many are there? We could make a line of cubes to
help us count. There are one, two, three, four,
five. There are five fish swimming along
quite happily in the line. But what’s this? We need to make room for one
more. We did have five. Now we have one more than five. What is one more than five? To find the answer, we need to
count the new number that we’ve made. One, two, three, four, five,
six. There are now six fish in the
line. We can say one more than five is
six. Another way of saying the same
thing is six is one more than five.

Now let’s imagine our fish go
swimming off, and another group of fish appear. This time, they’re not in a line to
help us, but this doesn’t matter. We can still count them. There are one, two, three, four,
five, six, seven, eight fish in this group. But what’s this? Think I know what’s coming, don’t
you? Looks like we need room for one
more. What is one more than eight? We can find out what one more is by
counting up to eight and, instead of stopping when we get to eight, counting another
number.

Let’s use counters to help us. So remember what we’re going to
do. We’re gonna count up to eight, but
when we get to eight, we’re not gonna stop. We’re gonna say one more number,
one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. One more than eight is nine. It’s the next number we say after
eight. And so if you think about it,
counting is a little bit like finding one more. Each time we say the next number,
we’re finding one more. Let’s practice everything we’ve
learned now about how to find one more. We’ll have a go at answering some
questions where we have to do just that.

There are seven squares. Pick the model that has one more
square.

How good are you at finding one
more than a number? In the first picture, we can see
some colored squares in a line, and we’re told there are seven of them. And then we’re given some more
models just like this. But we’re told to pick the one that
has one more square, in other words, one more than seven. Now what does one more than seven
look like? Well, if we put one more square
onto our row at the top, it would look like this. Instead of seven squares, we’ve now
made a new number, and this number is one more than seven. It’s the next number after
seven. Can you guess what number we’re
looking for? One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, eight. One more than seven is eight. It’s the next number we say after
seven. And so we’re looking for a row of
squares that has eight squares in it.

Do you think our first model has
eight squares? Looks like this line of squares is
a little bit short, doesn’t it? Let’s count the squares anyway. One, two, three, four, five,
six. This model didn’t even get as far
as seven squares, let alone one more than seven. This isn’t the right answer. Our second model looks like it
might be longer than seven squares. Do you think this one might be
eight squares long? Well, you know, we can be a bit
clever with this one, and we can look at it very carefully before we begin to
count. Look at the colors of each square
in each model. They all begin with a yellow square
and then it goes yellow, green, yellow, green, and so on, doesn’t it?

So when we look at our seven
squares at the top, what color are we expecting the eighth square to be? The seventh square is yellow. So we’d probably expect the eighth
square, the last square, to be green, wouldn’t we? But in the second model, we can see
that the last square is yellow. Let’s make a guess. Do you think this is going to be
the right answer or not? We’d better count to find out. One, two, three, four, five,
six. Well, we’ve got to seven squares,
but we can see that this model doesn’t show one more than seven. It shows two more than seven,
seven, eight, nine squares. Looks like we were right with our
guess about the colors, weren’t we? So we’re only left with one more
model.

This time, it does end with a green
square, so it looks like we might be right, but there’s only one way we can find
out. One, two, three, four, five, six,
seven, and one more than seven is eight. Eight is one more than seven, and
so we were looking for the model that had eight squares in it. We started off with seven squares,
and the model that has one more square than seven squares is the one that contains
eight squares.

Which picture has one more egg than
six?

This question is all about finding
one more than a number, and the number we’re given at the end of the question is
six. We need to find one more than
six. Can you imagine putting six eggs
into a frying pan? Maybe not because that sounds like
quite a lot of eggs. But imagine you have and then
imagine you put one more egg in. Perhaps somebody comes for
breakfast that you weren’t expecting. It’s going to make a new number of
eggs. And we’re looking for that
number. Now, before we start, have a quick
look at each of the frying pans with eggs in it. There’s no need to count the eggs
yet, but sometimes we can recognize numbers without actually counting.

One of the frying pans has got six
eggs in exactly. Can you spot which one it is
without actually counting? If you can, we could use this to
give us a good idea of which pan it might be that contains one more egg than
six. Well, whether you spotted the six
eggs or not, let’s start with this first pan. What would you guess? Do you think this has got one more
egg than six? Looks like quite a few eggs in this
pan, doesn’t it? Well, let’s count them. And as we do to make sure we don’t
count any egg more than once, let’s cross them out as we say each number, one, two,
three, four, five, six. Well, we can stop counting here,
can’t we, because we can see that this pan doesn’t contain one more than six. We can see another three eggs we
need to count. This pan contains three more than
six.

Let’s try our second pan, one, two,
three, four, five, six exactly. This was the pan we mentioned at
the start. Perhaps you spotted it already. Because we know that this frying
pan has six eggs in it, we can use it to help compare to the others. For example, if we compare our six
eggs to the next picture, we can see straightaway that the next picture is going to
show less than six eggs, isn’t it? We’d better count just in case,
one, two, three, four, five. We were right. We’d need to add some more eggs in
this frying pan to get one more than six, wouldn’t we? We’ve only got two more pictures to
choose from. The first one contains one, two,
three, four, five, six, and we can see one more egg than six. It looks like this picture is the
right answer. And if we just check our last
picture and we cross off six eggs, we can see that there are two more than six eggs
in this last picture.

So we know that the picture that
shows one more than six is this one. We’ve answered the question, but we
haven’t said what number one more than six is. Let’s find out just to end
with. In this pan, there are one, two,
three, four, five, six, seven. Seven is one more than six. It’s the next number that comes
after six when we’re counting. The picture that has one more egg
than six is the one that shows seven eggs.

Count on one more. What is the next number?

In this question, we’re given a
picture that shows us a number of counters, and we’re told that we need to count on
one more. We need to find one more than this
number. We need to find the next
number. So perhaps the first thing we’d
better do is find out how many counters there are, one, two, three, four. Our picture shows four
counters. Now, do you remember what the next
number after four is? One, two, three, four, five. The number after four is five. So let’s imagine that we start with
four counters, but now we’ve got one more and let’s count on one more. Do you think you know how many
there’s going to be? One, two, three, four, five. We started with four and we counted
on one more. The next number after four is
five.

Complete. What is one more than four?

The “what” in this sentence is
going to be a number. What number is one more than
four? And to help us with this question,
we’re given a picture. It might make you feel hungry
because these look like jelly beans. Now we can see a group of these
sweets, a group of one, two, three, four jelly beans. But there’s one more jelly bean in
the picture, isn’t there? What happens if we include this
jelly bean in the group too. What is one more than four?

We know that when we find one more
than a number, we say the next number that we’d say if we were counting, one, two,
three, four, five. If we start off with four and then
find one more than four, we’ll have five. One more than four is five. And so in our sentence, we can say
this a slightly different way. Five is one more than four. The missing number in our sentence
is five.

So what have we learned in this
video? We’ve learned how to find one more
than a number. We did this by adding one more
object to a group and then counting the new number that we found. We also found out that one more
than a number is the same as saying the next number when we’re counting in ones.
