Here’s a new free app in Math developed by the Math Learning Center that matches our practice of emphasis on flexible thinking than on getting the answer correctly using only one method.  In this app the students can use the number pieces to show their answer.  They can join the pieces in groups of ten or break them apart.  The drawing tools let them label and show their thinking.

Number Pieces Basic is for primary students, while the Number Pieces is for upper elementary students.

Enjoy the virtual manipulatives!
