What is mathematics? It is only a systematic effort of solving puzzles posed by nature.—Shakuntala Devi

Math and Science

Subitize [ soo-bi-tahyz ]:  the rapid, accurate, and confident recognition of the number of items presented without needing to count them, performed for small groups of items. Appreciate the natural mathematical skills of children from birth to 5 in Math: Number Recognition and Subitizing (ECKLC). Developing the innate skill of subitizing sets a strong foundation of math learning later in a child’s life.

Question-Observe-Predict-Experiment-Discuss! Watch this 5-minute video, Using the Scientific Method (ECKLC), to learn how to bring the scientific method into the classroom as teachers and children discover how to think like scientists in daily activities.
