The Geoboard is a tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics introduced in the elementary and middle grades. Learners stretch bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more.This virtual version of the manipulative is an open-ended educational tool, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use iPod Touches, iPhones, or iPads.Visit our site for more information about using the Geoboard.www.mathlearningcenter.org/apps.FEATURES: Create line segments and polygons by stretching bands around the Geoboards pegs. Choose from 5 different band colors; 8 band colors on the iPad. Fill individual shapes with a transparent color, or use the Fill All button to toggle all the bands between filled and unfilled. On the iPad, switch between the standard 25-peg board and the expanded board with 150 pegs. The larger board makes it possible for students to create a wider variety of configurations.LEARN MORE:To learn about Bridges in Mathematics, an elementary curriculum that employs visual models like the Geoboard, visit: www.mathlearningcenter.org/bridges/overviewACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:This resource is brought to you by The Math Learning Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to K-12 education since 1976.
