Ratings and Reviews
There are obvious and not-so-obvious ways to use the manipulatives. The tutorials and examples help you see the ones that are not so obvious, but when you see the examples, they suddenly seem obvious. I’m talking as a teaching wiz but not as a math wiz. The online tutorials/teaching tips are excellent. You have to spend a little time looking through each app so you can see the best contexts within which to use them, but the best way to learn how they’re useful is to try and use them within the contexts you think they might be useful. Circular reasoning? Only sort of. :-)
Wish list? A smart undo button.
I love these, but I would love them even more if you guys made a money manipulative. Basically taking different dollar bills and coins and having the same regrouping features that are in the base ten blocks, but regrouping into different coin or dollar combinations.
Developer Response ,
When we tell our programmers to make a Money app they storm out in protest and claim "Cryptocurrency and the blockchain will make traditional money obsolete". Seriously though, Money is definitely on our shortlist of next apps. If you are interested in previewing and testing when the time comes, please email support. We really appreciate your suggestion!!!
This bundle is phenomenal! I am a 4th grade teacher and I love using this for a concrete example of math problems!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
