Can you count using the number line? Or perhaps you’re ready to solve an addition problem using the number line. Do all that and more with this fun online number line.
Using the number line is fun and easy. To get started, choose what numbers you’d like the number line to show by clicking the number one on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. Then, select a number, or choose to leave the number line blank. Next, add colored squares or circles to the number line. Simply click, drag, and drop them onto the spaces above the number line. To remove them, click, drag, and drop them off the line. Click the trash can symbol to clear the virtual number line. Click and drag the black square at the top to scroll the number line.
There are many creative ways to use the online number line. Project it onto the board to practice counting with the whole class. Or, invite students to use it as a tool for modeling addition problems. For example, students can use pink squares to show one addend and blue circles to show the other addend. You can also model multiplication problems, subtraction problems, and more. Modeling math operations is fun with this interactive online number line.
