A virtual geoboard that allows you to create shapes by stretching rubber bands between pegs on the board. Allows a variable number of pegs and variable grid geometry and includes a point labeller.
This lower primary feature brings together activities which make use of geoboards.
This set of resources for teachers offers interactive environments which support work on properties of angles in circles at Key Stage 4.
A geoboard configured for cartesian coordinates.
How many different triangles can you make on a circular pegboard that has nine pegs?
These upper primary activities all make use of a geoboard or pegboard.
How would you move the bands on the pegboard to alter these shapes?
This feature brings together activities which make use of a geoboard or pegboard.
Geogebra square, circular and rectangular geoboards.
More lower primary activities which use geoboards.
General-purpose interactives for use in primary schools
This article for teachers explains why geoboards are such an invaluable resource and introduces several tasks which make use of them.
What is the total number of squares that can be made on a 5 by 5 geoboard?
This practical challenge invites you to investigate the different squares you can make on a square geoboard or pegboard.
Problem Solving Unpacked: Engage, Inspire and Motivate all students. Resources from the one day conference held at CMS in December 2014.
Can you find all the different triangles on these peg boards, and find their angles?
These features focus on how concrete objects can be used as manipulatives in the classroom, and how this can form the basis for problem-solving activities.
These articles, written for primary teachers, offer guidance on the teaching and learning of geometry.
Use the interactivity to investigate what kinds of triangles can be drawn on peg boards with different numbers of pegs.
How do you write a computer program that creates the illusion of stretching elastic bands between pegs of a Geoboard? The answer contains some surprising mathematics.
This gives a short summary of the properties and theorems of cyclic quadrilaterals and links to some practical examples to be found elsewhere on the site.
Activities and material for teachers.
Jennifer Piggott and Charlie Gilderdale describe a free interactive circular geoboard environment that can lead learners to pose mathematical questions.
An article for teachers based on a lecture and workshop activities at the NZAMT conference in New Zealand 2007
This article looks at how the National Curriculum aims of problem solving, reasoning and fluency can be embedded in geometry, using NRICH tasks.
Past Features for primary teachers
This article for teachers suggests activities based on pegboards, from pattern generation to finding all possible triangles, for example.
