  • No Comments

Contributed By


This resource for teachers presents the geoboard as a conceptual tool to help students gain a sense of geometric shape and area. The suggested activities range from an introduction of a concept, to extended student exploration of shapes and area using the geoboard. The teacher is fully supported with a list of materials needed, discussion guides and classroom activities for investigating length and area, and sample pages of dot paper to print. Explanations of the Pythagorean theorem, Pick's area theorem, and area formulas for 2-dimensional shapes are provided. Five lesson plans focus on lines, squares, rectangles, parallelograms, and right triangles. A bibliography is included. Less
