Students can extend their understanding of mathematics topics by using manipulatives, both real and virtual. The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives offers a wide variety of virtual tools for student use, divided into grade-level strands of PreK-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Within each grade strand are manipulatives for numbers and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability.
 
Free iOS apps that offer the opportunity to manipulative data and objects include:
Virtual Manipulatives! for iPad allows students to compare and manipulate fractions, decimals, and percents.
