Dot Card Counting

Directions: How can we figure out how many dots there are below?



What is another strategy for figuring out the number of dots?



Strategies will vary for counting the 11 dots.  Some will see a column of 5 down the middle and 2 sets of 3 dots on either side.  Some will see 3 rows of 3 dots and 2 extra dots between them.
