A free interactive resource for the whiteboard which could be used for many different purposes. These might include, for example, exploring ideas associated with factors and multiples or addition and subtraction. It is also an ideal context in which to investigate fractions or to look at finding combinations. The environment can be tailored to suit your objectives simply through the questions you ask the children. Lots of ideas for using it also available on the NRICH website (www.nrich.maths.org) - click on the link at the bottom of the web page.
