A Virtual Number Line for iPads

January 17, 2014

The Math Learning Center has some fantastic apps and I’ve already shared two of my favorites: Geoboard and Number Pieces. On the hunt for a number line for iPads? You’ll want to check out their Chromebook friendly web app and iPad app for students. This useful virtual math tool is one I recommend to teachers all of the time. It’s easy to use, kid-friendly and definitely worth adding to your student devices.

Number Line for iPad (also available as a web app) is a powerful virtual tool that helps children see relationships between numbers and interact with a number line.  Perfect for elementary school classrooms and as a support tool for students in need of extra help, this app gives children the opportunity to mark up a number line, draw on their screen and even type in equations.  One of my favorite features is the ability to hide and reveal the numbers on the number line.  Teachers also have the option of customizing whether the number line counts by 1s, 2s, 5s and more.

When might you use this number line for iPads? This tool might be used as students are skip counting or working with integers. It’s a great visual to give students who want to model their thinking as they add and subtract too. If students model their thinking with this tool they can take a screenshot and add it to another tool like Seesaw or Book Creator. When students do something like this they can record their voice using this other online tool or mobile app to show their thinking in a totally new way.

Definitely check out this completely FREE app – it’s great for one to one classrooms, small groups, or for teachers modeling with one iPad. If you’ve used this tool before, share your experience in the comments below!
