TouchMath Adventures Pro: Touching/Counting Patterns (iPad Only, $5.99)

Reviewer Comments

Touchmath Adventures Touching/Counting is the first in a series of apps that allows the user to experience TouchMath from a tablet.
The series is connected in that students take on the role of an explorer on a quest to unravel mysteries through problem solving and reward-based gameplay.
Touching/Counting begins with touching and counting patterns. Following activities include counting, developing number sense, and understanding the association between number and quantity. Other skills taught include: numbers 0-9, number values, and placing touch points. The app lays the foundation for apps that will be released in this series including Touch Math addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
The interface is clean and well-laid out with step-by-step verbal directions. When the app is started, users can select Chapter 1 (Learning Touching/Counting Patterns) or Chapter 2 (Placing Touch Points). There is also the option to customize “My Touch Points” with different styles of points. The computer-animated voice did bother some students, however for the most part it was not an issue.
This app follows along with the TouchMath program, as it is a multi-sensory learning experience and and makes sense of numerals and basic math. It is built on the Common Core Standards and is appropriate for RTI. It is free with the ability to purchase in-app items and it is also available for $5.99 in the Volume Purchase Program.
