What is the geoboard app?
The Geoboard app is a tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics introduced in the elementary and middle grades. Learners stretch bands around the pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more.
How do I make a geoboard online?
Place a rubber band on the board, then stretch it over the white pegs to form a shape. Kids love to make shapes. Using virtual rubber bands, now they can make all kinds of geometric shapes. Use the online geoboard to help children understand the concepts of area and perimeter.
How do I make a geoboard?
- Step One Trim your graph paper into a square shape.
- Step Two Trim your foamboard to match the paper size.
- Step Three Paint a layer of Mod Podge over one of your foambard base layers.
