  These Java applets and other virtual manipulatives cover
  mathematics appropriate to grades K-12, with a special
  emphasis on K-8. Browse by grade band or by math topic:

    - number and operations
    - algebra
    - geometry
    - measurement
    - data analysis and probability

  Each activity is linked to the corresponding NCTM Standards
  it addresses.

  Forthcoming are investigative questions related to each
  activity; and a teacher information page for each activity,
  featuring lesson plans and tips on how to implement the
  applets in the classroom.
