Product Description

This set includes 8 geoboards, 200 rubber bands and a guide. The size of each geoboard is approximately 20.5cm x 20.5cm. One side has 11 x 11 pins positioned in a grid, the other side has pins in an isometric position to facilitate projects with isosceles triangles.

7. Identify polygons with up to eight sides (pentagon, hexagon, octagon)

8. Calculate the area of a polygon (by counting the number of squares)

Using the geoboards and rubber bands, children can create, compare and explore different geometric shapes and designs. Have fun comparing similarities and differences in both size and shape. Work with numbers, symmetry, congruence, perimeters, areas, fractions and angles. The manipulation of math concepts on the geoboard will help children develop their understanding of these concepts visually and concretely.

Learning with the Geoboard 1. Locate the points (pins) on your geoboard

2. Construct (line segments and endpoints)
