Teaching math is a unique challenge for elementary school educators. Progressions are critical, anxiety is high, and mastery doesn’t come easy.
Failure to master the fundamentals early will prohibit any future mastery, so falling behind isn’t an option.
The One Certainty
Students will fall behind. It happens in every classroom, every year, no matter how much care and attention educators provide.
The Right Response
We know educators, and they care… a lot. So, when students can’t get back to making meaningful progress, it’s not for a lack of attention, effort or care. It’s got to be something else.
It’s Not Getting Easier
While inclusive classrooms have been great for all kinds of learners, they present educators with even more complexity. Keeping everyone on track is as challenging as ever.
Even with co-teachers, students needing remediation require different approaches.
You know that a quick intervention is the best way forward, ensuring individual success without having to sacrifice the progress of the rest of the class. It’s a small window, and educators need the right tools to ensure success.
Back on Track
TouchMath helps you give every student the best chance to close the math gap and get back on track. Our curriculum and resources are designed to quickly help students make progress toward mastery of math fundamentals, so they don’t stay behind.
Math presents many opportunities to fall behind.
Without a way to correct course, every passing lesson becomes more and more difficult. The gap widens and the progressions seem more and more distant. Students who don’t master addition won’t master subtraction, let alone division, or fractions, or algebra.
There’s a better way to ensure their progress.
With TouchMath, you get tools that enable you to remediate the right way, keeping each student on track to progress and able to back up when they need to revisit topics. Finally, a proven methodology for when you – and they – need it.
TouchMath moves students along standards-based learning progressions, supported by manipulatives and hands-on activities, to build strong foundations for math success.
As an educator, there’s no greater reward than when you instill belief in the children you teach, and TouchMath helps you realize that belief more often. The care and attention you give them, day in and day out, is put to better use with the right tools in your hands to intervene early, and get them on track the right way.
Let’s face it, when math is hard for students, it’s hard for teachers. The anxiety math can cause affects students’ ability to learn and causes problems for parents and educators that can persist if left unaddressed. TouchMath helps you keep them on track, relieving the stress that math can cause for everyone.
As an educator who cares about your students, you need to know that something you bring into the classroom is really going to work. Built based on the Concrete-Representational-Abstract continuum, TouchMath has been studied to prove its efficacy. Time and again, TouchMath gets results, proving more effective than controls and other methods of remediation.
