Geoboards in the Classroom

This web unit offers suggestions for using geoboards to explore the length and area of two-dimensional geometric figures. The introduction describes materials needed, offers discussion and activities for investigating length and area (in particular, Pick's Theorem), and provides sample pages of dot paper to print out. Five lesson plans focus on lines, squares, rectangles, parallelograms, and right triangles, and a short bibliography rounds out the unit.
