  • Meets the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards

  • Can find TouchMath in all 50 states and in foreign countries


What is it
What is it?

  • Multisensory learning approach that caters to all learner styles

    • Auditory, Visual, and Tactile/Kinesthetic

  • Used in general education in grades PK, K, and grades 1-5

  • Used in special education with programs for gradesK-3, 4-Adult, and an Autism program


Features
Features

  • Computer software equipped with tutorials and educational games for students

  • Teacher aids: workbooks, teacher guides

  • Free online trainings

  • On-Site seminars, University/College trainings (professional development)

  • Free printables: activity sheets, numbers, worksheets, calendars, fun sheets

How it works
How it Works

  • Each digit from 1-9 has TouchPoints corresponding to the digit’s value

    • Digits 1-5: single TouchPoints

    • Digits 6-9: double TouchPoints

  • By touching the points, students begin to associate numbers with real values

    • Addition: count forwards

    • Subtraction: count backwards

  • Always have student repeat the problem and answer aloud

    • This will reinforce basic fact memorization

    • Channels all 3 learning types (A, V, T/K)


  • Pros and cons
    Pros and Cons

    Advantages

    Limitations

    • Multisensory-caters to all learning styles

    • Eliminates guessing

    • Reduces errors

    • Increases independency

    • Scaffold instructional approach

    • Students will all abilities can use this program

    • Students may grow dependant on the numbers limiting their abilities to perform mental math

    • Confusing

    • Limited to elementary mathematics


    Ideas for elementary teachers
    Ideas for Elementary Teachers

    • Able to use throughout math curriculum

    • Very easy to create activities

      • Can use fuzz balls, dot stickers, Bingo markers, stickers, buttons, bingo chips

      • Theme and unit related: Apples, pumpkins, spiders, planets, trees, fish

    • Have students create their own TouchMath numbers for extra reinforcement

    Touchmath statements
    TouchMath Statements

    • The pattern in which the student touches the TouchPoints is crucial in obtaining the correct answer.

    • Addition:

      “I touch and count all the TouchPoints on the numerals”

    • Subtraction:

      “I touch the first numeral, say its name, and count backward on the other numeral.”

      Remember:

      More on top, no need to stop!

      More on floor, go next door!

      Numbers the same, zero’s the game!


    Addition
    Addition

    • Line up the numbers

    • Draw place value line

    • Start by voicing the largest number

    • Continue counting by using the TouchPoints dots

    • Record number below the line

    • Regroup and carry over if needed

    • Count the TouchPoints including the carried number

    • Record final number below the line


    Subtraction
    Subtraction

    • Line up numbers

    • Draw place value line

    • Start by voicing largest number

    • Count the TouchPoints

    • The answer is the last number spoken.


    Subtraction with regrouping
    Subtraction with Regrouping

    • Voice subtraction saying.

    • Line up the numbers

    • Draw place value line

    • Say the top number and count backwards on the TouchPointsof the bottom number.

    • If you cannot touch all the TouchPoints you must regroup.

    • Say its new name, and count backwards on the TouchPoints of the bottom number.

    • Record number below the line.

    • Move to tens place.

    • Say top number and count backwards on the TouchPoints of the bottom number.

    • Record number last spoken below the line.

    • Repeat the problem and answer.
