Hello -

For illustrations of more possibilities for using geoboards, see Tom Scavo's 
Web Unit, "Geoboards in the Classroom," on the Math Forum site at


It offers suggestions for using geoboards to explore the length and area of 
two-dimensional geometric figures. The Introduction includes pages that 
describe materials needed, offer discussion and activities for investigating 
length and area (in particular Pick's Theorem), and provide 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.
