Learning and understanding mathematics, at every level, requires student engagement. Mathematics is not, as has been said, a spectator sport. Too much of current instruction fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of virtual manipulatives. This poster will focus on representing various mathematical concepts using the power of educational media via virtual manipulatives. We will illustrate several websites containing a library of uniquely interactive, web-based virtual manipulatives or concept tutorials, mostly in the form of Java applets, for mathematics instruction. We will use a laptop to illustrate the interactive nature of the websites and the extensive library of each. A handout will be available.
