The Everyday Mathematics eToolkit is a collection of maths tools which you can access via your browser. It has a variety of different manipulatives for demonstrating a variety of maths concepts along with pen, text and line tools. There is also stopwatch, timer, and a calculator along with various backgrounds and other tools.

The fact that it runs in a browser makes it a very useful tool for users of IWB’s where their own packaged software is pretty limited, it also makes it platform independent so it’s useful in schools with several different types of board installed.

It’s very similar to the McGraw Hill Virtual Manipulatives that I wrote about last year, in fact it looks like a reskinned / updated version of the same resource.

It’s an interesting site, and well worth a look, visit The Everyday Mathematics eToolkit here.
