Tukey Tallying

(toc) #title=(Table of Content)
John Tukey invented it.
This is a method similar to Tally Marks, but it counts to 10 in one little diagram:
tukey tally 1 to 10
So, you start with one dot (for 1), then add dots as corners of a square until 4, then join the dots with lines until 8, then draw a diagonal each to make 9 and 10.
Then you can start another diagram for 11 onwards, like this:

Example: A dot tally of 12:

tukey tally 12

Example: A dot tally of 27:

tukey tally 27

The Traditional Tally Method

tally 12
But most people use the traditional Tally Marks as they are a little quicker.
