The Number Pieces app helps students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building their computation skills with multi-digit numbers. Students use the pieces to represent multi-digit numbers, regroup, add, subtract, multiply, and divide.
Two versions of the app are available depending on the grade level and concepts to be explored. With Number Pieces students can represent larger numbers and multiplication and division concepts. Number Pieces Basic is a simplified version for use with primary students. It has fewer features, putting greater focus on place value, counting, addition, and subtraction.
These virtual versions of the manipulative are open-ended educational tools, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use iPads.
