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.
