This interactive Flash applet supports the exploration of numbers to 100 by simulating a 100-bead string. A teacher or child can move all or some beads to the left or right to add and subtract. The controls allow users to move beads individually or 10 at a time to model different counting and calculation strategies. Users can hide or show the numbers represented by the beads. This applet lends itself well to use on an interactive white board. A PDF guide to this collection of teaching applets is cataloged separately.

Type: Virtual Manipulative

Okta's Rescue (Counting Success):

This applet asks students to save as many octopuses as possible before the timer runs out. A number of how many they can net is displayed in the top right, and they will use the mouse to net that amount into the tank before releasing them for the next round. When the timer is up, another screen comes up with the number of octopuses saved represented in rows of ten. Finally, students will be asked to input on a number line how many they successfully saved.
