Abstract

DigiQuilt is a software system intended to allow children to design patchwork quilt blocks in the context of learning about symmetry and fractions. It combines the benefits of virtual manipulatives and learning through design. In the following pages, we describe a new kind of manipulative environment with explicit support for design and math.
