ENHANCING SUBITIZING 2Enhancing Subitizing: Deepening Understanding of Basic Mathematical Operations throughTouchMath and DominoesTouchMathTouchMath is a multisensory math program designed to make math concepts easier and more accessible for students with different learning styles and/or learning difficulties (InnovativeLearning Concepts, n.d.). It makes critical math concepts appealing and accessible for students who struggle to understand grade-level content. This approach combines auditory, visual and tactile strategies for understanding numbers and operations. (Innovative Learning Concepts)With TouchMath, every number, one through nine, has physical points called “TouchPoints.” Numbers one through five have single points while numbers six through nine have double points or a combination of single and double points. As the students touch each point, they count (Pancare, 2017). The points (or dots) help the students understand the name andvalues of the numbers. Students can use this system to add, subtract, multiply and divide
