Subitising Dot Patterns - How Many Bubbles?

Subitising Dot Patterns - How Many Bubbles?

Subitising is the instant recognition of patterns of shapes to be able to determine a number. There are many different ways in which we all see these patterns and they are a lively discussion topic for any primary grade class to determine how we interpret these displays of dots. I encourage you to view this dot number talk by Jo Boaler in one of her many inspirational presentations https://vimeo.com/129139086 where she works through this concept with a middle primary group of students. This download comes with both a PowerPoint presentation and a PDF version with 27 slides/pages (including credits and terms of use). As the slides increase in difficulty the students transfer their knowledge from class discussions and can readily determine a quite complex display of dots on a page. The graphics are engaging and visually inviting for students with some wonderful clipart from Manny's Sketchpad . A useful addition to any Maths Teaching resource kit for primary school teaching.
