Manipulatives make math more accessible for children, especially for hands-on and visual learners. Often an abstract concept becomes more concrete for a child when they have the opportunity to build their number sense with tangible items.
These free math manipulative apps from The Math Learning Center are handy tools for a variety of math applications. Ten different apps are available, from pattern shapes, to an interactive number line , ten frames and more. The apps are not only available for Apple/Windows and Chrome, they are also available as web apps for those not using a tablet or smartphone. You can find the manipulatives HERE.
