#3 Visual Subitizing

Subitizing is a fancy maths term that refers to the ability to see a certain number of similar objects (usually <20) and know how many there are without counting. Think of the way dots are arranged on a dice, so that you know what six is without having to count. Clever, huh?

But the ability to subitize is not something that comes naturally to us. Usually, it needs to be explicitly taught, usually in lower elementary school. Flockmen can be arranged visually to create numbers that help children learn to subitize.
