Math Apps

In class, we often use manipulatives to help students solve math problems. Visual aids help students to understand big ideas and concepts in mathematics.

Here is a list of math apps (some are manipulatives). Some of these apps are free, others are paid. I have not previewed many of these apps as I use physical manipulatives in my classroom. However, I still wished to share the list with you.
