Description

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

Measurement

Naming Shapes and Parts of a Circle

Symmetry

Drawing and Analyzing Two-Dimensional Shapes

Congruence and Similarity

Naming and Recognizing Basic Shapes

Length, Area, Perimeter, Circumference, Radius and Diameter

Coordinate Geometry

What's New in Version 1.2

The Geoboard now displays 4-quadrant Cartesian plane when mirroring and labeling options are selected.

Customer Reviews

Cool idea, but no activities

This app is a good idea for students to work with shapes. My favorite feature is the box in the bottom right that shows side length measurements and area. Also, student can work with circles on the GeoBoard, which they can't make on real GeoBoards. The only thing is that this app fails to provide any activities or lesson along with the GeoBoard. Teachers could come up with some good lessons, but they could do that with a normal GeoBoard. I could see students playing around with it even more than they would a normal GeoBoard without thinking about content.
