Hands-On Math: Geoboard creates a virtual geoboard on your iPad and includes activities for a variety of math topics. The app purchase includes an instructor's guide with hands-on activities for elementary and middle school age students. This free iBook provides teachers with lots of activities and lesson ideas that are designed to be used with the app. A simple tap downloads the extensive teacher's guide and installs it in iBooks.
The app simulates the use of a popular math manipulative used to teach basic geometry and other math concepts. It is perfect for elementary and middle school classrooms. Our Geoboard is one of the best ways to help students explore and discover geometry. Students draw line segments, rectangles or circles on a 5x5 pegboard. As they draw geometric feedback is reported on a note card helping students better understand length, perimeter, and area.
Using Hands-On Math Geooard students can develop the following important mathematical concepts:
Properties of Shapes
Composing and Decomposing Plane Figures
Naming Shapes and Parts of a Circle
Drawing and Analyzing Two-Dimensional Shapes
Congruence and Similarity
Naming and Recognizing Basic Shapes
