How do you learn math?
Using manipulatives can help students learn and understand Math. When involved and actively working with physical objects, concepts are visualized for the learner. The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives (NLVM) helps students interact with math skills through web-based virtual manipulatives. Using a SmartBoard or ActivBoard to access the website gets the students up and participating. Physically touching the board and managing the problems as they are presented help them understand the concept.
