Manny's Rumba

This shockwave applet develops a student's place value concepts and number sense through practice with base ten models. Learners are given a target number and move the base ten blocks (ones or tens) to a central mat to represent that target number. The program offers different skill/ability levels. Several representations of the final result are shown.
