Why use electronic Math Tools?

  • They help bridge the connections among different modes of representation - concrete/pictorial/symbolic.
  • There is an unlimited supply.
  • They are easy to distribute and manage.
  • You can often make quick changes among materials/representations.
  • Only a web browser and Internet are required – no installation, CDs, compatibility issues!
  • Students may find them to be more engaging that traditional materials.
  • Printed versions of student work can be sent home for parents and/or included in portfolios.
  • They are accessible anytime/anywhere (home, library) – equity of access.
  • They often can be manipulated even more flexibly than concrete objects.
