Mathematics teaching that provides opportunities for play embodies many of the Mathematics Teaching Practices described in Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (NCTM 2014). PhET interactive simulations (or sims), developed by the PhET Project at the University of Colorado Boulder (http://phet.colorado.edu), are freely available virtual tools that promote play and exploration in mathematics and science topics for K-16 students.
