Teachers of mathematics
Teachers of mathematicsfor centuries have helped students understand mathematics using “manipulatives”-- visual objects that help illustrate mathematical relationships and applications. Manipulatives allow students to visually examine, explore and develop concepts.
The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM)
The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM)at Utah State University has transported these powerful teaching tools into the virtual dimension of the computer. The NLVM collection of over 100 interactive software programs, called “applets,” are an effective means for accelerating and deepening students' understanding of math.
