Art Mabbott: Triangular Numbers (60)
With a simple set of moves you can reach a state of equilibrium in a decomposition of any triangular number – very cool!

Carla Parker: Lab Gear: Algebra Tiles That Make Sense (60)
Created by curriculum developer, puzzler, author and thinker Henri Picciotti, Lab Gear are manipulatives that offer deeper conceptual understanding to strong students as well as increased sense-making for struggling students. We will explore integer arithmetic, distributive law with factoring, and solving equations.

Joyce Frost: Paper Fold Tangrams, Then Unfold the Math (45): Tangrams are a great manipulative to visualize scaling and to create triangles, squares, trapezoids, rectangles, and parallelogram from 1-7 tangram pieces.
