Number Rack facilitates the natural development of children’s number sense. Rows of movable, colored beads encourage learners to think in groups of fives and tens, helping them to explore and discover a variety of addition and subtraction strategies. Available for iPads or online.
These virtual pattern blocks are open-ended educational tools that can be used to explore geometry and fractions, create designs, or fill in outlines. As students work with the shapes they explore geometric relationships, think about angles, investigate symmetry, and compose and decompose larger shapes. Many of these explorations lead naturally to thinking about fractions as parts of a whole.
With this virtual geoboard, students stretch bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more. iPad and online versions available.
