Description:

This often cited article by Douglas H. Clements discusses the important early childhood mathematics skill of subitizing, the ability to recognize a number without using other mathematical processes. Children use counting and patterning abilities to develop conceptual subitizing, which in turn supports their development of number sense and arithmetic abilities. Clements presents factors that make conceptual subitizing easy or hard and number activities which foster this ability and also promote imagery and estimation.
