What is Subitising?

We often recognise the number associated with a particular pattern immediately, even before we have had time to "count" one by one. The process to immediately recognising how many items are in a small group is called subitising. By "chunking" information, subitising contributes to early forms of grouping. The process of subitising can also be used with seeing parts in the whole. Interpreting number in terms of part-whole relationships makes it possible for children to think about a number as being made up of other numbers.
