The last two editions of the Bennett/Nelson text and activity book have been accompanied by a kit of colored punch-out materials that are commonly used in schools. Now these materials are in the updated Virtual Manipulative Kit and can be conveniently accessed and moved about the screen. Each of the nine manipulatives has a work area with toolbar to display manipulatives and a notepad for recording data and results. Both the notepad and the work areas can be printed to turn in for assignments or projects.
