***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? 
Use "Build Your Own" mode.
