TouchMath Numerals with TouchPoints™
Every numeral from one through nine has TouchPoints™ corresponding to the digit’s value. Numerals one through five have single TouchPoints.™ Numerals six through nine have double TouchPoints.™ Students count aloud as they touch the single TouchPoints™ once and double TouchPoints™ twice. The numeral zero has no TouchPoints™ and is never touched or counted. This concrete approach engages students on auditory, visual, and tactile/kinesthetic levels.
To ensure that students arrive at the right answer, it is important that they touch the TouchPoints™ in the correct Touching/Counting Pattern for each numeral.
