A Fantastic App for Subitising

Whilst on prac, a Mathematic focus was for the students to develop their ability to subitise. Subitising is when the student automatically recognise a number. The most common representation of subitised numbers is probably the domino form. As a requirement was to include ICT into our lessons, after talking with other prep teachers at a moderation meeting there was a suggestion of the Subitising Tree app. I downloaded the app at home before allowing the students to play it just to make sure it covered the learning objectives I wanted to achieve. It was a fantastic app. It started out at a simple level for instant success by students and then moved into more challenging levels. It also include many different representations for the students to subitise. Here is a link to read about the Subitising Tree App https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/subitize-tree-hd/id634880139?mt=8
