There's really no app like GarageBand -- imagine being able to write, record, and share your own professional quality music wherever you are with a few taps of a screen. It's a powerful mobile digital audio workstation for multitrack recording with impressive, on-board loops and production and editing tools.

This is a fun and creative way to practice using the number line and to put different kinds of numbers in order. Kids physically interact with the number line, moving it around, zooming in and out, until they truly understand how it works.
