Default Dot math?

Help! I'm hoping there is a teacher/mom out there who can tell me what you call the math numbers with dots on them. This is the system where the number 1 has one dot, 2 has a dot on 2 spots. I am trying to find info online & can't! THanks!

It's called touch math. I bet if you google it you'll find lots of info.

Hi there. My son is using that system to learn math. Basically they count the dots. If it is a dot with a circle around it it counts as 2 dots. Does that make sense? It's a great system and works well for teaching our special kids.

I learned that in 4th grade...It was a "new math" then, lol...or at least at my school. Anyways, still use it today. Hubby thinks I'm nuts, but it just stuck.

Huh! I'd never heard of it, but I saw a guy using dots like this when he was playing Sudoku! Interesting.

We use touch math with our special ed. kids who have a hard time memorizing basic math facts.

That is exactly how my daughter learned how to add! She does not recognize the actual numbers but with her touch math she was able to learn how to add! At my house we love Touch Math and she is getting better all of the time! About two months ago her teacher started to ween her off of it so she would not rely on it and so far so good! She is able to read numbers 1-8 and we are so excited!
