Virtual Manipulatives

ABCya has done it again!  I'm sure many of you are already familiar with website.  The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives

 But what I just found out is that they have an app.  This app is awesome for teaching fractions, decimals, and percents.  The screen shot below is the directions for using.

Basically on half of the screen you can choose from fractions, decimals or percents and drag them to the second half of the screen.  This allows you to compare fractions like the picture below.  But what is even more exciting is that when you click on the fraction pieces it will show you the fraction as a decimal and a percent.  It also has the feature that lets you draw.

This is an awesome app!  I have my fingers crossed that they add more manipulatives in the future.  At the price tag of free, you can not beat it!  What do you hope they add next?
