TouchCounts
http://touchcounts.ca/
A free app that encourages children to experiment with
counting, addition, and subtraction recently debuted for
the iPad.
TouchCounts lets children create and manipulate their own
numbers by using their fingers to tap and swipe. Two fingers
"pulling apart" a number, for example, splits it into two
smaller parts; the farther apart you pull, the larger the part
you split away from the original whole.
Click "numbers" or "operations" on the banner at touchcounts.ca
for activities and teacher notes.
