Speedy Pictures II

Students can use this interactive applet to practice quick recognition of the number or value of a small group of objects, without one-to-one counting. This skill, called subitizing, is important in the development of number sense. The user chooses among several representations, including fingers, a pair of dice, an abacus, a ten frame, and coins. In this version of the game users score points according to how quickly and accurately they complete each round of ten examples.

    • In Math Recovery, this is called structuring or subsitizing. It helps students to break apart numbers in different ways. This site differs from Speedy Pictures 1 because the picture is not flashed. You cannot set a certain time limit for the pictures. This is helpful for introducing at the K level where they need to study the pictures to see groups or for students who are proficient in structuring and want to race to see how many they can get.
