This is a complete activity kit for use with the free Touch'N Slide Calculator app available for iPad (you can download it for free here: (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/touchn-slide-calculator/id650194031?mt=8).
This activity kit helps to introduce children to addition and subtraction operations with whole numbers. The kit includes numerous ideas for how parents or teachers can work with their children or students as well as a diagnostic assessment, a progress chart, and a certificate of achievement that students can have upon completion of the course.
In conjunction with the Touch'N Slide Calculator, children will interact kinesthetically with the display, moving up and down the number line as they perform calculations. Initial studies have shown that the calculator enhances children’s cognitive number sense and arithmetic intuition. Children will not only learn how to perform arithmetic but actually understand how and why it works!
