Conceptualizing Addition.
Flexer, Roberta J.
Teaching Exceptional Children, v21 n4 p20-25 Sum 1989
A strategy is presented for teaching arithmetic to students with mental retardation, based on subitizing, skill of recognizing number of objects in a set without actually counting, and pattern recognition. The strategy helps children understand concept of addition by representing number configurations on 5-frames and 10-frames, and reduces need for counting by enhancing students' recognition of number structures.
