To Half or Half Not
Jump into equivalent fractions using these fun scenarios for mathematicians to solve. First, they use geoboards to find different ways to divide a rectangle in half. Then, an alien from the planet Fractional is after one half of their candy, but scholars trick him into taking a smaller amount using equivalent fractions.
4th - 5th Math
Shapes on the Geoboard
Create fun shapes on the Geoboard! Your young scholars will have a blast discovering new ways to form familiar and unfamiliar shapes using rubber bands. They choose a favorite shape and record it, then write about their shape. Use these boards for other fun ideas!
K - 1st Math
Move Along Little Vertex
Middle schoolers find the area of non-right triangles. They will find the area of non-right triangles by changing them into right triangles. They use a geoboard program on their calculators to manipulate non-right triangles. Then they record the length and height of the triangle to ensure the area does not change.
6th - 8th Math
Explore the concept of area of shapes. Learners will find the area of triangles, squares, and rectangles using a geoboard application on the graphing calculator. They will also find the area of trapezoids and other irregular shapes by dividing the trapezoids into two or more triangles.
6th - 8th Math
New Review Classifying Triangles
Building on young mathematicians' prior knowledge of three-sided shapes, this lesson series explores the defining characteristics of different types of triangles. Starting with a shared reading of the children's book The Greedy Triangle, children go on to create triangles using geoboards and flexible straws, complete a series of worksheets, and, finally, demonstrate their learning on a short quiz.
4th - 8th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Unit of Measures used in Measuring the Area of a Triangle/Parallelogram
Third, fourth, and fifth graders explore area measurement. First, they define and identify parallelograms. They then construct parallelograms on a geoboard and determine the area by covering it with paper square centimeters. They also solve story problems about area using the geoboard.
