A website for students of all ages to explore different math concepts
that interest them, or to get some extra practice. The site is organized
under the topics: Numbers, Algebra, Geometry, Data, Measure, Puzzles,

Tool: Algebra Balance Scales - Negatives - National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (Utah State University)
http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/19435/
Solve simple linear equations using a balance beam representation.
Coefficients and constants may be positive or negative.

Tool: Making Change - Colleen King

Tool: Slope Slider - Shodor: Project Interactivate

This activity allows the user to use various controls to manipulate
a linear function graphically.

Tool: Place Value Chart - Ulrich Kortenkamp
http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/181488/
This iPad/iPhone/iPod touch app provides an interactive place
value chart. You can place tokens by touching the screen and move
them around with your finger(s). Moving tokens between different
places is only possible when moving from a higher to a lower place,
or when enough supplementary tokens are available to be bundled.
Removing tokens can be done by moving them to the top. The tool
can be used either to demonstrate place value, or for self-exploring
by students. One possible activity could be to find the fastest way
to remove a certain number of tokens (say, 3 hundreds, 8 tens
and 7 ones).

Tool: Algebra Tiles - National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (Utah State University)
http://mathforum.org/mathtools/tool/417/
Visualize multiplying and factoring algebraic expressions using tiles.

Tool: Splash Math - Splash Math, Studypad INC
