The Annotation Feature can be used to share mathematical thinking by creating sketches, manipulating annotation objects and shapes, and annotating with text.

Each of the following tools has an annotation feature.

This Tip Sheet explains how it works. Support Wiki

Represent numbers, ratios and percents. Explore patterns and measurement. Create geometric designs. Tiles can be squares, circles or rounded squares. Users can change colours, create mirror images, rotate, and copy selections. Support Wiki

Represent fractions by dragging pieces from the fraction tower into the workspace. Pieces can be placed in a line to form a train. Manipulate the pieces and trains to compare and order fractions or to model fraction operations. Support Wiki

Represent various amounts using realistic images of Canadian coins and bills. Customize the money tray, drag money singly or in multiples of 2, 5, and 10, and annotate work. Support Wiki

Write solutions, sketch diagrams, import pictures, create graphs and record your mathematical thinking. Use one of four backgrounds: grid, isometric dot, lined or blank. Use built-in line, shape and text annotation objects, including number lines, rulers, grids and polygons. Copy and rotate any annotation object. File Operations (Save, Open, Open from WWW and iTunes File Sharing) are supported. Support Wiki

Represent, compare, order and operate on whole numbers and integers using vectors, hops, magnitude bars, number ribbons or points on the number line. This dynamic tool makes it easy to zoom in, pan and switch betweeen horizontal and vertical number lines. Support Wiki

Use the Rekenrek to build understanding of whole numbers, number relationships, and strategic reasoning for counting, addition, subtraction and multiplication. Relate numbers to the anchors of 5 and 10. Use the annotation feature and imported images to communicate solutions. Support Wiki

Represent, compare, order, and operate on whole numbers, fractions or decimals by dragging rods from the tower into the workspace and manipulating them. The colour scheme of the rods can be customized, including to a traditional and a primary palette which are similar to physical manipulatives. Use the annotation feature and imported images to communicate solutions. File Operations (Save, Open, Open from WWW and iTunes File Sharing) are supported. Support Wiki
