Virtual Base 10 Blocks: Endless Manipulatives and Annotation!

June 19, 2015

I’ve shared some of my favorite virtual tools for the iPad. One fantastic free app I love is Number Pieces. This app simulates base ten blocks. It lets students manipulate the pieces and annotate their screen. These virtual base 10 blocks are perfect for supporting students in the classroom.

It’s perfect for children learning place value, addition, and subtraction, and teachers who want their students to explain their work.

Number Pieces is an iPad app but also available on web browsers making it a great choice for Chromebook classrooms.
