Peter Esperanza
NumberBender is a website that helps math teachers provide
dynamic presentations coupled with related worksheets to
add to their math lectures. Teachers have the option to
and the worksheets are in PDF format.

***FEATURED TOOL

Maurici Carbo
Program about mental arithmetic with a pre-algebra tool,
introducing Gaussian elimination, an algorithm for solving
systems of linear equations. Use the video on the page
as a tutorial.

***FEATURED TOOL

Pind & Bjerre
This calculator app made its first public demonstration
last month at the 12th International Congress on
Mathematical Education (ICME). Designed to help
dyscalculics, Dyscalculator shows quantities in multiple
representations: as digits, as words, and (for comparisons)
graphically. It also speaks figures aloud and rounds numbers.
It was developed with the support of the Danish Ministry
of Education.

***FEATURED TOOL
Tool: Hands-On Math: Graph Cubes
http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/175021/
Ventura Educational Systems
Use simple gestures to drag and drop blocks, placing them in
columns to build bar graphs. The author and designer coined the
term "artificially intelligent math manipulative" to describe
how using the Hands-On Math apps differs from the concrete
manipulative devices traditionally used in classrooms. For
example, this app provides intelligent mathematical feedback as
the student manipulates the cubes. Immediately associating
feedback with a behavior is an effective way to reinforce
behavior and facilitate learning.
