The geoboard provides a nicely constrained environment for mathematical exploration, and lends itself to many activities where students can discover or apply important ideas in the K-12 curriculum. This page is a hopefully comprehensive list of links to geoboard activities on this site and on my blog.

All activities I link to below can be done on the CircleTrig Geoboard, a two-sided manipulative I designed. On one side, an 11 by 11 traditional geoboard. On the other side, a circle geoboard, with radius 10 cm, and a 360° protractor. It is available from Nasco.

(However, most can be done on traditional 11 by 11 geoboards, or traditional circle geoboards.)
