Number Line Tool Online Version 3.0

In collaboration with Intel and The Mathematical Association, the Number line has been designed specifically to support the teaching and learning of mathematics for pupils at Key Stage 3. The Number line tool offers a dynamic environment in which teachers and pupils can explore numbers and relationships between them.  In its simplest use, number lines can be created quickly and easily, and the display can be in decimal and/or fractional notation; the numbers can also be hidden. A point on the line, ‘n', can be dragged along the number line and its exact position revealed as a decimal to a chosen number of decimal places.  Further points can be positioned on the line and the environment will support pupils to make connections between related points on the line and begin to generalise about relationships using simple algebraic rules. Users have the ability to work on data that has been previously saved using the File Open and Save features

The Number Line Tool is now available in an online or desktop (downloadable) version.
