Geoboard, by the Math Learning Center
The Geoboard is a tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics introduced in the elementary and middle grades. Learners stretch bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more. This virtual version of the manipulative is an open-ended educational tool, ideal for elementary classrooms and other learning environments that use Windows 8.1.

- Create line segments and polygons by stretching bands around the Geoboard’s pegs.
- Choose from 8 band colors.
- Fill individual shapes with a transparent color, or use the Fill All button to toggle all the bands between filled and unfilled.
- Switch between the standard 25-peg board and the expanded board with 150 pegs. The larger board makes it possible for students to create a wide variety of configurations.
