Virtual Math Manipulatives

Even if it sounds like an oxymoron to you, check out the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives. It provides interactive online math lessons, activities, and assessments. Topics include fractions, functions, geometric transformations, integer arithmetic, patterns and sequences, probability, right triangle trigonometry, slope, triangle geometry, and writing equations of lines.
I was particularly pleased to see algebra activities for early childhood learners. TERC researchers have shown that young children who are encouraged to think algebraically have more success throughout school math. Read more about that research here.
