ITP Moving Digits ITP Moving Digits

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP allows you to demonstrate the effect of multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. By dragging cards from the set of digit cards, different decimal numbers can be displayed. These decimal numbers can be placed in either of the two middle rows. The cards in the first row move when the multiply or divide buttons are selected. The cards will not move if the result is greater than 99 999 or less than 0.01. The cards in the second row do not move in order to highlight the shift in the digits when multiplying or dividing.
The ITP can be used to explore, and to encourage children to predict the effect of multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. The ITP can also be used to demonstrate the effect of repeated multiplication and division by 10.

ITP Place Value ITP Place Value

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP displays on-screen place value cards to construct and partition three-digit whole numbers. Once the cards are created they can be deleted clicking on the cross in the top left hand corner. By clicking on the number, a card can be dragged around the screen and repositioned. You can have one or two sets of cards on the screen at a time. The value of each place value card is determined using the respective button at the bottom of the screen.
Each number on a card can be represented by groups of counters, clicking on the pointer on the card to reveal and hide the counters.
The ITP can be used to demonstrate the construction and partitioning of numbers to secure children’s understanding of place value. Displaying two sets of cards you can compare their values and pose questions about their sum and difference. Partitioning the numbers and rearranging them can be use to help children understand how pencil and paper methods of calculation are recorded.

ITP Number Grid ITP Number Grid

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP generates a 100 square. Choose a colour or the grey mask. You can then click on individual cells to hide or highlight them in different colours, and by clicking on the box at the left-hand foot of the grid and using the pointers you can hide or highlight rows and columns. The prime numbers and multiples can also be highlighted.
You can change the number of columns from 3 up to 13, the starting number, and its position – either top left corner or bottom left corner of the grid. Choose the mask option to create a temple that can be moved around the grid to hide or highlight particular groups of cells. The template can be rotated using the single arrow button.
The ITP can be used to explore different multiples, number sequences and patterns on grids of different sizes. The superimposed masked template can provide practice at adding groups of numbers and enable children to hypotheses about the sums and difference of the numbers.
The ITP can develop children’s ability to predict and generalise. Changing the number of columns provides a new grid to test general statements about the relationships between numbers and to look for counter examples.
