Touch Points: Making Math as Easy as 1 2 3
So, what exactly is touch points? For those who are not familiar with this concept, it is basically where numbers have imaginary dots placed on them in specific places.
When you remember where these dots are, you can use them to count when working on a math problem. This eliminates the need of counting on your fingers.
Each number has that many touch-points on it (meaning, the number 4 has 4 touch points, 8 has 8, and so on). Once you’ve really remembered where these touch points are, it’s kind of like riding a bike. You will never forget them again.
