Virtual math manipulatives -intermediate/high school

Math manipulatives are very important in math as they help students visualize and internalize different concepts. Children need to hold math in their hands before they can hold math in their minds. Virtual math manipulatives that simulate the physical manipulatives and more are very useful with the new reality of virtual learning. There are some great free virtual tools on the web that can be used by students to practice skills and by teachers to explain different concepts. We have put together a list of our favorite math manipulatives, this time for the intermediate and high school students. The list is in the form of a google slide for easier access and sharing in virtual classrooms. Feel free to use it as it is or edit it according to your needs.
