National Libray of Virtual Manipulatives
has transported powerful teaching
tools into the virtual dimension of the computer.
The NLVM collection of over 100 interactive
software programs, called “applets,”
is an effective means for accelerating
and deepening students’ understanding of math.
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)
is the public voice of mathematics education,
providing vision, leadership, and professional
development to support teachers in ensuring
mathematics learning of the highest quality
for all students.
Teachers from 1–6 can use it to begin to "algebrafy" their
arithmetic classes, preparing their students for topics
that are normally dealt with much later in the curriculum.
They can also find out what research shows young
children are capable of learning.
