The Peg Board

The peg board is a Montessori material that can be used to explore least common multiples.  Student use a series of different colored pegs to represent groups of numbers (separated by a divider).  Students continue grouping until they discover a common multiple.  The peg board is available for students to use at any time during our work period.
