Subject: Re: More number lines?

When you say that you want to "show the numbers between 10, 20, and so on", do you mean that you want each mark numbered? Here are some things that I tried on the "Decimals Number Lines Whiteboard Tool" link from: http://www.mathsonline.co.uk/freesite_tour/resource/ When you first open it, the scale is 0 to 10. If you select the last control that looks like "mmm" the marks appear along with the labels so now you have 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 all displayed. If you want the scale to be 0 to 100, you select the "100" on the vertical option bar and if you also have the "mmm" selected you will have all of the marks. I realize that they aren't labeled but if you really want the students to be able to see every number, they could label them after printing. Another idea is that you could print one, add the number labels that you want them to have, and then you could photocopy that one master copy to give one to a student. If I've misinterpreted what you are seeking, please explain again, and perhaps I can find the resource that you need. -Suzanne A., for the T2T service
