This week’s free app is Number Line by Todd Bowen. The first thing that caught my attention about this app is the developer: Bowen constructed this app while he was getting his PhD at Virginia Tech for Instructional Design and Technology. I don’t know about you, but I love apps created by educators, because they usually take into account how apps would work in a classroom setting, and are often easier to integrate into activities.

Number Line is no exception: the game is designed to allow students to visually order decimals, percents and fractions on a number line. Students earn points and move across levels by correctly ordering and placing the numbers on the line.

Here is a screenshot of the app:

Happy counting, y’all!

  1. Why can’t I find this in the app store? When I clicked on the link I got an error message

      1. Hi Cindy, sorry I couldn’t get back to you sooner but I’m glad you found the app!

  2. Thanks for the recommendation. This app is really cool. I love playing it myself. I have a student who comes to me for math help and I think he’ll like this.
