• What is Touch Math?

Math barriers begin in elementary school. Without remediation, they continue through life. As students age, it becomes crucial that they have a simple, straightforward, and reliable system that is immediately accessible in their minds. TouchMath is a system that is a multisensory step-by-step approach that provides struggling learners the opportunity to understand and overcome previous barriers. Materials are organized by topic allowing teachers to choose specific skills that need to be retaught.

The 10 topic-based units that comprise TouchMath Upper Grades are:
