Multisensory Math

TouchMath is a multisensory math program designed to make math concepts easier and more accessible for students with different learning styles. The approach uses auditory, visual and tactile strategies for understanding numbers and operations.

The success of Ms. McGraw’s math students prove TouchMath is a program that works!


In TouchMath, every number from one through nine has physical “TouchPoints” on the actual number that students physically touch with their finger or pencil as they are counting.

Numbers one through five each have single TouchPoints – the number of TouchPoints corresponds to the number itself.

Numbers six through nine have double points or a combination of double and single points that the students touches.

Once the students have learned how the program works for individual numbers, you can use the system to teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. For addition, students touch the dots while counting forward. For subtraction, students touch the dots while counting backward. For multiplication and division, the students will count in sequences.
