Physical manipulatives are locked away in classrooms, so teachers, students, and families are turning to The Math Learning Center apps to support understanding of visual mathematics in a remote learning environment. Usage of these free virtual manipulatives and models has tripled over the last six weeks.
On Friday, May 1, more than 500 educators attended an MLC webinar on how the apps can be used to enrich learning. Participants became familiar with the apps by exploring a series of hands-on activities. Notably, participants learned how to produce share codes, eight-character codes that can be used to share a particular problem or activity within an app. Share codes were used with the Number Piece app to show how students might share ideas with their teacher.
