Use the bead string to support numeracy and display numbers in sets of 5 and 10 using red and white beads. It is an essential tool for mathematics and helps with automaticity of numbers.

You can drag the beads to move them around. If you select a specific bead, its number is displayed. Select again and the number disappears.


In the Settings menu, you can modify the bead string to meet your students' needs.

You can choose between 2 kinds of bead strings: a single long string (straight) or a bead string that is divided into multiple rows (winding). You can select how many beads you want to be displayed on the string and if they are split into groups of 5 or 10.
