Research has shown that most young children have a tremendous capacity for understanding numerical relationships. The TouchMath Program has been proven to accelerate math comprehension among general and special education students of all abilities and learning styles. Many students progress to more advanced skills generally introduced in first and second grades.
Most children entering kindergarten can count by memory and identify numerals up to 20. But do they know what the numerals really mean? TouchMath not only encourages memorization — it goes further by developing student understanding of underlying concepts.
Using pictorial objects and our signature TouchPoints, we teach children to associate numerals with real values. They learn that a numeral (3, for instance) is not just a squiggle on a page. It represents a quantity such as three apples, three ladybugs, three buttons or three TouchPoints.
Once students learn the meaning of numerals and have mastered the TouchPoint Touching/Counting Patterns, they can quickly use their counting skills to add two or more numbers. Many kindergarteners can even add one or two columns of numbers, subtract and multiply – skills usually introduced in later grades.
Using pictorial objects and our trademarked TouchPoints, we teach young children to associate numerals with real values (number quantities).|
