TouchMath numbers look like regular numbers with dots on them. These dots are called TouchPoints, and each number has a corresponding amount of TouchPoints.The TouchPoints help students remember the number by counting the dots.
Numbers up to five have single TouchPoints, and numbers six through nine have double TouchPoints. For example, the number four has four dots, while the number six has three dots with circles around them. The circles let a child know which TouchPoints to count twice.
TouchPoints are very helpful in computation. Students can work an equation, such as 5 + 3, by counting the dots on both numbers together to get the answer.
