National Library of Virtual Manipulatives

Before we dive into the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives overview, let me introduce our partners who support our work on this blog.

WAV.Media is a music app that helps rising talents find their way to success in the music production industry. If you want to support our efforts, please check out their Amazon storefront where you can find cool things to buy for your dorm room, studies or just for fun. Enjoy!

The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives, developed at Utah State University, is very popular among math teachers at my school. This free site supports math students from kinder through 12th grade, with plenty of online exercises in Number and Operations, Geometry, Measurement, and MUCH more! Each major concept is organized by grade (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 8-12); once you click the appropriate tile, a long list of applicable practice items from which to choose will be listed.

CC Connection:  This site covers the vast majority of Math core standards. Lots of ways to provide your students opportunities to see and practice various important 'core' math skills, using online manipulatives.
