To help parents and teachers teaching their students math, we have a range of tools, templates and games. These are all designed to help students with dyscalculia make more sense from math. We have featured these tool on this website however you had to make an account to get to the download page and so to make it easier to get the right tools, we have launched a new website just with our free downloads.
Schools are starting, many still partly or totally online. Our students with dyscalculia thrive by handling manipulatives themselves and over the summer many parents have been proactive by buying a set of the materials most used so the tutor can demonstrate and can see how the student builds the same and after that can show how to work out his/her own answers. We can’t expect parents to purchase the variety of manipulatives a tutor has, so we often need to throw in some online manipulatives. Here are the websites with virtual manipulatives I am using the most:
NumberShapes has interactives with number lines, including double number lines to help visualize proportional thinking, attractive looking subitizing using colored eggs, also images, tasks, apps, and games http://www.numbershapes.com/
MathsBot, Tools for Maths Teachers has arguably the largest series of manipulatives, and tools https://mathsbot.com/ also help for GCSE, fact practice drills, and more
Mathigon has activities that include virtual manipulatives at the polypad https://mathigon.org/polypad base ten blocks, number bars, fraction bars, algebra tiles, pentominoes, and tangram that you can place on a white background or in a square grid, save your work and share or with your student by email
