Abstract/Summary A teaching experiment was conducted with a small group of prep children considered ‘at risk’ mathematically, to explore the effect of explicit instruction on the development of tens facts through visualisation of the ten frame. After the two-week instructional period, children could mentally recall all addition and subtraction tens facts without counting, and this performance was considerably higher than the class average. In this paper, the sequence of instruction is documented, highlighting the influence of instruction upon tens fact development.
