Subject: Re: The Potential Dangers of Teaching Touch Math

I was trying to find a way to improve my students' accuracy on math facts and hopefully break them from using their fingers so much. When I decided to do some research on touch point math, I ran across this article and I'm so glad that I read about the long term effects that touch point math can have on my students.
