TouchMath Counting and TouchPoint Training teaches single digit number values using the one-of-a-kind multisensory TouchMath system -- the ONLY math program that uses the actual numeral as a manipulative. Each numeral from 1 through 9 has TouchPoints corresponding to the digit's value.
As students count the TouchPoints, they associate numerals with real values. They learn that a numeral (3, for instance) is not just a squiggle on a page. It represents a quantity such as three baseballs, three ladybugs, three starfish or three TouchPoints.
WHAT WILL STUDENTS LEARN?
With TouchMath Counting and TouchPoint Training, students learn:
-- Numbers 0–9
-- Number Values
-- Touching/Counting Patterns
-- Placing TouchPoints
-- Numeral/Quantity Association
-- Less Than/Greater Than

Ratings and Reviews
I love Touch Math. For $5.99, I thought we were getting the system... You know, how to add?! This is ONLY how to place the touches on the digits. My 6 year old mastered this in less than 10 minutes. "Chapter 1" teaches where to place the touches. "Chapter 2" the child practices placing the touches in the correct order. That's it! No math...for $6! My fault for misunderstanding what I was buying & for not reading the other review! The "extras" are themed touch marks! What?! Where is the app for learning what to do with this knowledge? :(
Review by a Special Ed Teacher
TouchMath Adventures Pro provides multi-sensory support for children who are learning the touch point sequence by utilizing all the learning styles (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic).With bright colored numbers and automatic sound and actions after the student touches the correct point leaning becomes fun and attractive to their eyes. At first the students are introduced to a story/setting about a training station in Earth’s orbit where your student will be trained by a robot.
Throughout the learning activity the robot will be giving the students directions on how to touch and count the touch points. The robot will then model the touching sequence followed by the direction for them to do it. The activity blocks the student from touching the touch points in the incorrect order. Once the touch points are touched and counted correctly the robot reinforces the student with praise.
Once the students learn the skill of touching and counting the touch points in the correct sequence, they can continue using the various Touch Math Adventures Apps to work on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. I highly recommend this app to teachers and parents who want to incorporate technology and provide a multi-sensory approach to learning Touch Math.
Not worth the purchase
I don't believe that it is worth purchasing just to get extra Touchpoint packs. For the cost of the Pro, we should at least receive the addition of giving students an opportunity to practice addition and subtraction. I am not happy with this purchase and regret not just sticking to the Lite version.
