Virtual Manipulatives Computer Center

Ivm13 have tons of websites that I love to use for math, but my go-to website is called Virtual Manipulatives. It is sponsored by Utah State University and it shows so many concepts in so many great ways.

Here are the three sections that I use the most, but there is so much more to this website than even this.

Base Block Subtraction – Drag the red blocks to the blue blocks to make them disappear. When you don’t have enough ones, drag a ten’s block to the one’s section and watch it separate!

Comparing FractionsSee equivalent fractions side by side, play with denominators, just overall a great visual for this concept.

Analog and Digital Clocks – Make the digital clock match the analog clock. Simple and easy, view both side by side, great visual for students.
