Geoboard Website

by Early Math Counts

I wrote about Geoboards the other day when discussing topology. I found this website when looking for a good picture of a Geoboard as well as a place to buy them.  This website creates a “virtual” geoboard that children can manipulate.  When you open it, a geoboard appears and you can click on the rubber bands and then put them on the pegs.  You can drag them to create different shapes.  On the side, there is a color palette so the children can choose which color they want for their shapes.

This site is a nice addition to actual geoboards, but I wouldn’t replace the real thing.
