GLOW: a tool for students to see math in a new light!
9+ practice modes across apps
35+ levels to build skills
1 tablet, Chromebook, or Mac required
Glow is part LED display, part etch-a-sketch, and all about making math make sense! Students turn dials and press buttons that control the lights and, in turn, illustrate operations, write math equations, and model fractions. The hands-on aspect allows students to visualize math concepts in a new, concrete way.
- 1 Glow LED board
- 1 USB charging cable
- 5 overlays for the LED board
3 Apps for Students
- GlowGrid - Students model addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with lights
- GlowPix - Students write math equations to create pictures
- Fractions - Students model fractions
Teachers love Glow for self-checking, differentiation, and reporting. Whether using Glow to introduce a standard, revisit a skill, or offer remediation, the Teacher Guide offers helpful sample introduction scripts, student prompts, and discussion questions. The printable version is free and a spiral bound version is available for purchase.
THE OWLET MATH TOOLS COLLECTION
Two hands-on manipulatives, Glow and Cube, combine with digital apps to make abstract math concrete for grades K-5. “Aha!” moments result from peer-to-peer sharing, safe space to explore, and immediate feedback.
Based in research, driven by joy
The Owlet Math Tools collection is the result of a 3 year design and research study supported by the National Science Foundation and enhanced by real math teachers in classrooms across the United States.
No-distractions math manipulatives for K-5
Let students explore math in a safe, ad-free digital app. With Glow and Cube, engagement comes naturally - no games required. Align to learning goals while practicing math that actually looks like math.
If you like Glow, you’re sure to love Cube, the other half of Owlet!
