# Touch'N Slide Calculator

math is a sport! LLC
Unlike other calculators the Touch’N Slide Calculator visually displays the underlying mathematics, giving users a visual and kinesthetic sense of what the arithmetic means.

“The student's reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. What I have noticed and found to be quite interesting is that students catch their own mistakes. “
- Zach and Saif, middle school tutors

"The visual representation of the operations crosses language barriers, allowing students with limited English proficiency to succeed." - Chris K., high school math teacher

"It's so much better than a regular calculator. You can see what's happening."
- Caleb S., student

Designed for children ages 5~12, the Touch’N Slide Calculator is a calculator that goes beyond what other calculators can do and teach by visually representing the meaning of the underlying arithmetic. Children interact kinesthetically with the display, moving up and down the number line as they perform calculations. Initial scientific studies have shown that the calculator enhances children’s cognitive number sense and arithmetical intuition. Your child will not only learn how to perform arithmetic but actually understand how and why it works!

Touch’N Slide proves that understanding arithmetic can be easy and fun with hands-on learning that doesn’t require pen and paper. Touch’N Slide is a calculator which instantly conveys basic arithmetic operations into easy to visualize steps. It lets students practice and reinforce the computation strategies taught in class, using a color-coordinated, step by step process. Touch’N Slide helps your child experience the number scale as a continuum and master arithmetic by practicing on the iPad.

Features:
Ability to select addition/subtraction (+/-) operations only
Ability to toggle between addition and subtraction
Ability to extend the numberline to negative numbers when the child reaches that stage of conceptual development.
Lets the student explore families of numbers, such as all the numbers that add up to 5, or all the numbers whose difference is 8.
Allows the student to toggle back and forth between equivalent ways to represent addition or subtraction problems.
Numbers are shown as intrinsic segments along a continuum.
Works in portrait and landscape orientations on the iPad
