Speedy Pictures 1

Students can use this interactive applet to practice quick recognition of the number or value of a small group of objects, without one-to-one counting. This skill, called subitizing, is important in the development of number sense. The user chooses among several representations, including fingers, a pair of dice, an abacus, a ten frame, and coins. In this version of the game an adjustable timer determines how long each group is visible. The applet keeps score of the number correct in each round of ten attempts.

    • In Math Recovery, this is called structuring. It helps students to break apart numbers in different ways. This one differs from Speedy Pictures 2 because you can set it to flash the picture for various increments (seconds). Then you can repeat the picture in case students missed it.

      Breitling replica luxury

    • Breitling replica luxury watch retailers are almost wilfully ignoring Strategy Analytics’ research. Either they know it’s wrong, or Mr Mawston got the part about sticking their head in the sand absolutely right. When I spoke to some of the watch retailers in Orchard last weekend, most hadn’t heard of Strategy Analytics’ research. Instead they had two other reasons, which echoed the ones in the Straits Times:The first of these is an economic slowdown in China, which reduces the number of luxury watch buyers. One of the cheap breitling retailers, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told the familiar story of a weakened manufacturing sector in China, which means less affluence. Fewer tourists are buying luxury watches. The Wall Street Journal’s report confirms the decline of luxury watches in Hong Kong, citing that brands such as Cartier and Tag Heuer are buying back timepieces. Buybacks like this occur when luxury watch brands want to retain high prices, as a tightening supply will cause prices to go up. This year is the first time the United States has overtaken Hong Kong as the world’s largest buyer of luxury watches. WSJ also mentions Beijing’s crackdown on graft, which causes fewer people to buy chanel replica as gifts.
