Abstract [en]

Evidence indicates that children with a well-developed number sense are more likely to experience long-term mathematical success than children without. However, number sense has remained an elusive concept. In this paper we summarise the development of an eight dimensional framework categorising what we have come to call foundational number sense, or those non-innate number-related competences typically taught during the first years of schooling. We also show, drawing on grade one lessons from Hungary and Sweden, how teaching focused on conceptual subitising, the teaching of children to identify and use easily recognisable groups of objects to structure children’s understanding of number, facilitates students’ acquisition of a range of foundational number sense-related competences.
