## Counting Up Using a Number Line

When we talk about "counting up", the number line is often the math tool of choice.  We start with one of the numbers in our equation and count up from there.  As we count up, we "jump" from number to number.  We can even make bigger jumps by moving 5 or 10 numbers at a time.  The Number Line strategy can be used for both addition and subtraction.
