Q:

# What do Touch Math charts look like?

A:

For each represented digit on a Touch Math number chart, a small number of "touch points," or small dots whose quantity is equal to the numerical value of a given digit, are added. Touch Math charts may include arithmetical concepts such as addition, subtraction and multiplication or may simply be designed to help children learn to count to 10. The charts generally are not extremely graphically detailed or complex, as they are aimed at young children.
