We each use this site often in our classrooms! It is a great site for high level kids to let them explore and challenge themselves. Low level kids also benefit from the visuals.
I have used this in my classroom with the pattern blocks whioe teaching fractions
I have used the geoboards
I think there are a lot of other great things on the site. we just noticed they have lessons and extensions, as well as assessments
Good visual site for math instruction
One of our manipulatives did not function correctly, but we liked the first one.
