Running head: ENHANCING SUBITIZING 1 Enhancing Subitizing: Deepening Understanding of Basic Mathematical Operations through TouchMath and Dominoes Ashleigh Russell Concordia University
ENHANCING SUBITIZING 2 Enhancing Subitizing: Deepening Understanding of Basic Mathematical Operations through TouchMath and Dominoes TouchMath TouchMath is a multisensory math program designed to make math concepts easier and more accessible for students with different learning styles and/or learning difficulties (Innovative Learning 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 and values of the numbers. Students can use this system to add, subtract, multiply and divide
