Exploring Segment Lengths on the Geoboard

Mark Ellis, David Pagni 

May 2008, Volume 13, Issue 9, Page 520

Abstract:
This investigation requires students to make connections to the Pythagorean theorem, congruence, and combinations by exploring segment lengths on a geoboard. Its use of visual representation and a range of mathematical ideas makes this task accessible to learners with varied levels of prior knowledge. In this activity, the use of multiple representations allows for greater access to mathematical ideas. Activity sheet and student samples included.
