Duration: 1 hour

Rodd Christensen uses everyday objects to show that when you add, you get more, and when you take away, you get less. Aimed at young children, each episode considers one single concrete example of addition or subtraction, while episodes 9 and 10 show counting beyond 10 and counting down from 10.

With infectious enthusiasm and lots of laughs, Rodd demonstrates the sums using everyday items, He then shows the same sum on a single line abacus, then again counting on his fingers. Finally, with a movement song and a number track. From sewing buttons on to his clown suit to spending his hard-earned pirate coins to buy a parrot, Rodd uses fun, repetition and catchy tunes to make sure that the sums demonstrated are easy to remember.
