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.
With a background as classroom practitioners and technology analysts, we have the blended expertise necessary to define, design, and engineer innovative apps that improve the process and practice of teaching and learning.
Here are a few examples from our portfolio of apps we've designed and engineered for clients on a variety of platforms.
