Fun with Geoboards

Geoboards have always been a love-hate thing for me.  I love all that students can do and learn on a geoboard.  But, there are always a few students who want to shoot the rubberbands at other students.  Usually at least one student snaps a rubberband and hurts his or her finger.  If only they could use them for their intended purpose!                                                                                        
I tried using these cotton loops as a substitute:

The cotton loops solved the problems with rubberbands flying across the room.  The only glitch with them is you need to have geoboards with tall pegs.  I had some at the time that looked like homemade ones.  They looked like small nails were partially nailed into a board.  These worked perfect on those boards, but not as well on the plastic goeboards.

Today, I found something new that you will want to try and it is FREE!  The geoboard app can be used on iPhones or iPads.

Have you used this app yet?  If so, tell me about your experience.

I followed a link from Pinterest for the free geoboard pack. Is the pack free or where you referring to the app? Where can I get your pack? I would love to add it to my back to school math stations! Thanks for sharing!!
