I think the merit of using computer math tools instead of real blocks is because
virtual tools enable the students to develop something impossible in real world.
It is easy to build up something that will collapse in real world. But to help
children learn this difference, it will be important to integrate it with real
materials.
This tool also open ended, and can be applied in different ways - planning and
building, calculating number or space of blocks, etc.
