Virtual Manipulatives


I have provided a virtual set of fraction bars on for several years. Many teachers have contacted me about creating a similar application for the iPad. Here it is! I offer this app for free because virtual manipulatives alone do not provide meaning for learners; they require a teacher to guide meaning and connections.

A good feedback loop is essential to deliver the best results. I encourage adults to send your thoughts and suggestions on how to improve this app. To the best of my ability I will incorporate your ideas into subsequent versions to deliver what you want.
