Classroom Learning Partner (CLP) tools allow students and teachers to create, annotate, and manipulate visual representations to solve math problems. The tools may be used for a number of mathematical purposes, but were mainly conceived to assist in creating visual representations for multiplication and division. The underlying model of multiplication and division assumed by the current set of tools involves a repetition of groups of the same size.
CLP contains seven tools for use in creating visual representations, as shown in examples. More details about using each tool follow these examples.
