In this lesson, Professor Perez teaches us some techniques for doing addition problems. He shows us different ways people add numbers on a number line and emphasizes that we can add numbers in any order we want if they are all being added together. He encourages the development of kung fu math techniques to solve problems quickly and efficiently. Through various examples, he demonstrates how to add multiple numbers together by breaking them down into smaller groups and adding them in different orders.
