Number Pieces Basic
Number Pieces Basic helps students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building their computation skills with multi-digit numbers. Students can use the number pieces to represent multi-digit numbers, count, regroup, add, and subtract. The drawing tools allow students to label representations and show their understanding.
This virtual version of the manipulative is an open-ended educational tool, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use iPads.
Note: Number Pieces, an advanced version of Number Pieces Basic, is also available in the App Store. Number Pieces has additional features for representing larger numbers and multiplication and division concepts.
