See student work in real time
Using Google Slides and Jamboards, free to all internet users, teachers can now watch and listen to students work with manipulatives as they teach.
Build deep understanding with visuals
Using the most critical tools for each grade level, these environments allow for students to visually represent his/her thinking in multiple ways.
Draw and Model Thinking
We've recreated the math boards needed for each grade level in a way that allows students to use a drawing tool to write, draw, and demonstrate mathematical thinking.
This includes links to all of the grade level materials: * Google Slides with manipulatives *Jamboards with grade level scaffolds and tools *Quick Practice slides for each unit *Daily routine slides for each unit
