Today my lesson involved circles so I wanted the student to model their math with circles not ellipses. Google Jamboard is a great tool for students to show their learning. ( Ex: Google Jamboard: Using Open Middle Math Problems ) The problem is, when you use the shape tool on Jamboard and click and drag you’ll end up with an ellipse. Here is the trick for how to make a perfect circle in Jamboard instead.

How to make a perfect circle in Google Jamboard rather than an ellipse.

Single Click

The trick to making a perfect circle in Jamboard is to just click. Select the shapes tool and circle and then tap on the frame.

Resize

When you tap a circle is created, but Jamboard makes it in a default size. Use the resizing handles in the bottom right corner to make larger or smaller while maintaining the proportions. In other words, to avoid stretching out the circle.

Change the Color

Having selected the circle you created, use the fill tools in the horizontal toolbar at the top of the frame.
