“Children who are able to subtract with ease and efficiency know the parts of number and see the relationship between composition and decomposition of numbers and addition and subtraction.” Kathy Richardson, Assessing Math Concepts: Hiding Assessment. Didax Publishing, page 26.
The probe will first be probing for the student’s ability to see part-whole number relationships. For each of the students I started off with the number 6 because it was a number in the middle. If a student is not able to master the number 5 the assessment will move backward to assess the number 4, if the student is able to show master of the number 6 then they will move up to the assessment of the number 7.
Assessment: With Counters
1. First I have the child count out that many counters, I place the excess counters to the side.
2. Then I close my hand around the counters and confirm that he/she knows how many are hidden there.
3. Then I remove some and show them in the palm of my other hand.

The running joke about the Super Hornet is that it is a “jack of all trades, and master of none”. The truth is that the Hornet and specifically the Super Hornet has been required to replace the F-14 Tomcat, the S-3 Viking and the A-6 Intruder. That required the Super Hornet to effectively satisfy the mission sets of three aircraft. Boeing was responsible for ensuring that the airframe could handle that challenge, and succeeded in most cases. What Boeing was not contracted to solve, however, was…

I was always curious how children could be diagnosed with Autism at such a young age, and I learned a lot of new information on how it is diagnosed. After reading the texts, and samples many of my previous questions were answered about these…
