Number Frames, by the Math Learning Center

Number Frames help students structure numbers to five, ten, twenty, and one hundred. Students use the frames to count, represent, compare, and compute with numbers in a particular range.

The frames help students see quantities as equal groups of other quantities and in relation to benchmark quantities. This helps primary students move away from one-by-one counting toward more efficient ways of counting and computing. As students advance, custom frames can be constructed to help visualize factors, products, fractional parts and more.

These virtual versions of number frames are open-ended educational tools, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use iPads.
Number frames are a key model used in Bridges in Mathematics, second edition. Online preview available at: www.mathlearningcenter.org/bridges

Number Line, by the Math Learning Center

Number Line helps students visualize number sequences and model strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It can be used to represent sequences of numbers, including whole numbers and multiples of a variety of numbers.

Students can use what they know about number relationships and computation to identify missing elements of sequences shown on the number line.

This virtual number line is an open-ended educational tool, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use iPads.

You-Log Reading

YOU-LOG READING: Are you ready to turn the page? Let’s face it, paper & pencil reading logs can turn reading into a chore- for both you & your child. Parents run around on a Sunday night, trying to remember which child read what, & for how long. Young readers grudgingly fill out (or fudge) reading log entries night after night with titles, authors, pages & minutes read, etc.

YOU-LOG READING turns logging into an easy & engaging activity that promotes the love of good books.
