Geoboard, by The Math Learning Center

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
• Create line segments and polygons by stretching bands around the Geoboard’s 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.

What's New in Version 1.1
Improved performance and responsiveness.
Great app with one serious lack
This app is great for modeling the use of geoboards for a class. It’s fast, flexible, and realistic—my students can set up the same shapes on their physical geoboards that I do in the app. HOWEVER, it really needs the ability to save shapes so that I don’t lose class time building the models for teaching every time.
I plan to use this app for my technology classes and tell other teachers about the app. This is a great app for creating shapes for all students. Love the virtual design of a classic material.
It is great for my little sis but not me I can't figure out how to make the right shape I want. It doesn't matter what shape it is when my sis plays because she just messes around I actually try to learn with the app
