My daughter (1st grade) just brought home a page of "math" work based on this method. Previously, in home, we had been learning base10 math utilizing MathUSee manipulatives. She was well on her way to grasping addition, and place value. I needed her to explain this "touch math" method to me. Immediately I questioned how stripping numbers of their values and ignoring place value, and ignoring the necessity of quantifying "0" will assist in her future understanding of mathematics. I see that Touch Math could allow for a "quick & dirty" approach to lowlevel computation. But then what?
