## Thinking Blocks

Thinking Blocks is a site that offers you virtual manipulatives that you can project, and interact with on your Interactive White Board. There are specific sections for Addition, Subtraction, Fractions, and Ratios. Each section allows you to choose examples of varying difficulty as well as watch a video to go along with each example. Once you are ready to begin solving your own, the program walks you through the steps of the equation, prompting you to place the thinking blocks where they go. Students can track their progress as well.

If you would like to make your own word problems to solve, there is also a modeling tool section where you are free to type in your own problem and make your own thinking blocks to go with it
