Balka, Don S. – School Science and Mathematics, 1975

Many fundamental geometric figures can not be constructed on the familiar square geoboard (e.g., equilateral triangle, regular hexagon). Activities which can be used with an isometric geoboard for study of these figures are catalogued. (SD)

Hampton, Homer F. – School Science and Mathematics, 1979

The introduction of prime numbers in the intermediate grades should be handled with care or the concept will appear arbitrary, artificial, and unreal to the pupils. The approach suggested here is in the form of a game-like activity. A knowledge of multiplication and factors is a prerequisite. (BB)
