***FEATURED TOOL
Tool: Hands-On Math Attribute Blocks
http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/175022/
Hands-On Math Attribute Blocks provides an interactive
learning environment for learning and enhancing mathematical
concepts related to set theory, geometry, number theory, and
logical thinking. Attribute Blocks offers 8 levels of
difficulty. Younger learners will benefit from the settings
where the challenge is to place blocks and determine the
logical rules for which blocks are accepted and which blocks
are rejected. For older students teachers may want to use
some of the options where the challenge is to find a missing
rule for a pattern or Venn diagram.

***FEATURED TOOL
Tool: Equivalent Fractions
http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/175603/
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Create equivalent fractions by dividing and shading squares
or circles, and match each fraction to its location on the
number line. Check your work, and use the table feature to
capture results and look for patterns. Got a particular
value for which you'd like to make equivalent fractions?

***FEATURED DISCUSSION
