Exploring A Great Maths App

During our Mrs S time we used our new iPad mini devices and our laptops to explore a great Maths app called Geoboard. A Geoboard is made of nails and uses rubberbands and can be used to explore topics in geometry. We were able to use a virtual geoboard which meant that we never ran out of rubber bands and they could not break by being stretched too much.

We started out by exploring the app and the tools we could use. We then had an open ended challenge to complete. The good thing about an open ended challenge is that there can be many answers.

Have a look at some of our work.

Have you used a Geoboard to create shapes? What else could you use the Geoboard app to explore in Maths? Please leave a comment sharing your thoughts.
