Catch a Bouncing Ball - Operations is a game that allows players to practise addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Players determine the unknown value in the given question and drag the glove to the correct answer on the number line.  The annotation tool is available for students to mark their thinking on the number line before placing the glove.  At the end of the multiplication and division games players have the opportunity to view two different possible representations of the question. This game is available for desktop and from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.   Catch a Bouncing Ball
Just like the physical manipulative, Colour Tiles can be used to represent numbers, explore patterns and create geometric designs.  This digital version provides three shapes for tiles (square, circle and rounded square) and many colour choices.  As well, the user can create mirror images, rotate, copy and configure selections. The beading option supports colours that match commercially available beads and was developed to support First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) projects. This tool is available for desktop and from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.   Colour Tiles
The Set Tool can be used to create sets of objects that can then be sorted and classified.  Sets can be randomly generated or created by dragging specific objects into the workspace.  This tool can be used to create patterns, explore probability and represent, compose and decompose whole numbers, tenths, and fractions.  Early years learners can scramble sets to practise counting and conservation skills. This tool is available for desktop and from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Set Tool
