Teaching touch math basics Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Teaching Touch Math Basics
    Touch Math is Easy
    by Michelle R. Smith
  • 2. Touch Math basic principles incorporate sensory and visual learning.
  • 3. Touch Math is a program that is being used within the school system to assist students, both regular education and special education students. 
  • 4. Touch Math provides manipulatives to assist with teaching the basics, worksheets to practice the concept and there is even a computer program for "fun" learning of the concept.
  • 5. Basic Concept
    The numbers one through 9 are used.  Each number has a dot that corresponds with that number.  For example:
     
    The number one has one dot on it.
    The number two has two dots on it.
    The number three has three dots on it. 
    And so on up to and including the number 9.
  • 6. An Example of the Numbers
    These images were copied from http://www.touchmath.com/images/grid.jpg
  • 7. Teaching Concept
    The individual is taught the concept, through visualization and touch, that by counting the number of dots on the number that they can identify what that number is.  For example:
     
    Identify the number for the student. Demonstrate that there is one dot on the number one.  Continue with this demonstration until you get to the number five.
  • 8. Concept
    The individual is taught the concept, through visualization and touch, that by counting the number of dots on the number that they can identify what that number is.  For example:
     
    Identify the number for the student. 
    Demonstrate that there is one dot on
    the number one.  Continue with this
    demonstration until you get to the
    number five.
     
  • 9. Concept Continued
    When you get to the number
    six you will have to explain that
    there is not enough room on the
    number to place six dots.  At this
    time you will need to explain the
    concept of having a "double dot":
    a larger dot with a smaller dot
    in the center of it.  Demonstrate
    that you count this "dobule dot"
    as two - Touch the "double dot"
    twice as you count it: one, two.  There will be three sets of
    double dots on six.  Count each dot twice.

  • 10. Overview
    The concept of Touch Math is AWESOME.  This program benefits both the visual and tactile learners.  The continual repetition of counting builds an association between numbers and manipulatives and will enable any child to learn to count
