Geoboard - Coordinate

This interactive Java applet lets users explore the coordinate plane through the use of a Geoboard. The user places bands on the board where each peg is at an integer coordinate. Once a band has been placed, the applet outputs the perimeter and area of the shape or, if bands are placed as line segments, the applet outputs the distance and slope of the segment.
