Research Bibliography

These research articles discuss some of TouchCounts’ theoretical foundations and empirical findings about its use:

(This paper describes how TouchCounts engages children in self-initiated mathematic activity that enables them to develop more fluency in counting and adding.)

(This paper describes shows how children develop stronger "finger gnosis" when working with TouchCounts.)
