The National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in the US has produced a plethora of interactive resources to improve the teaching and learning of maths for everyone. The ITPS (interactive teaching programs) are available for both KS1 and KS2 maths and can be used by teachers and pupils alike.

Coin Box

Learn how to count, collect, exchange, and make change for coins by manipulating coins using an array representation. KS1 KS2

Deep Sea Duel

This strategy game requires you to select cards with a specified sum before your opponent (also available on iOS and Android).KS2

Dynamic Paper

Need a pentagonal pyramid that's six inches tall? Or a number line that goes from ‑18 to 32 by 5's? You can create all those things and more! Place the images you want, then export it as a PDF or as a JPG image. KS1 KS2

Equivalent Fractions

This applet allows you to create equivalent fractions by dividing and shading squares or circles, and match each fraction to its location on the number line. KS2


Dividing Numbers into Two Factors and Building Arrays to Represent Each Factorization KS2

Fractal Tool

This applet allows you to explore iteration and patterns in shapes and numbers with fractals. KS2

Fraction Models

Explore different representations for fractions including improper fractions, mixed numbers, decimals, and percentages. Additionally, there are length, area, region, and set models. KS2

Geometric Solids

This tool allows you to manipulate various geometric solids and investigate their properties. KS1 KS2

Pan Balance – Expressions

Using this interactive tool, you can practice arithmetic and algebraic skills, and investigate the important concept of equivalence. KS2

Pan Balance – Numbers

Use this tool to strengthen understanding and computation of numerical expressions and equality using a balance scale. KS2

Pan Balance – Shapes

Use this tool to build up to algebraic thinking by exploring how to balance shapes of unknown weight. KS2

Tessellation Creator

Use this applet to create patterns to cover the screen using regular polygons.KS2

Turtle Pond

Estimate length and angle measure while guiding a turtle to a pond using computer commands. KS1 KS2

Adjustable Spinner

Use this tool to create a spinner to examine experimental and theoretical outcomes. KS1 KS2

Bobby Bear

Use counting strategies to make outfits for Bobbie Bear with different colored shirts and pants. KS1 KS2

Box Plotter

Use this applet to create a customized box plot with your own data, or display a box plot of an included set of data. KS2


This applet is used to explore the number of chairs needed when tables are rearranged in a restaurant. KS2

Cube Nets

This applet allows you to examine various two-dimensional figures to determine which ones can be folded into a cube. KS2

Circle Tool

This activity allows you to investigate the relationships between the area and circumference of a circle to its radius and diameter. KS2


Play a matching game with different representations of equivalent items. KS1 KS2
