Number Pieces, a free new elementary education math app from The Math Learning Center (MLC) (www.mathlearningcenter.org) and Clarity Innovations (www.clarity-innovations.com) aims to help students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building their computational skills with multi-digit numbers. Young learners manipulate virtual base 10 pieces to represent multi-digit numbers, regroup, add, subtract, multiply, and divide. Number Pieces also provides a drawing tool to label representations and show their understanding.
Number Pieces is the third app in the growing MLC collection, joining the Geoboard and Number Rack apps released in the spring of 2012. Additional virtual manipulatives are planned for release this year.
