This video will introduce you to Algebra Tiles and will provide ways for you to implement these manipulatives for your classroom. If you do not have Algebra Tiles, not to worry! This video will show you how to make your own!
To help your students with Algebra Tiles it is best for them to have a good grasp of the additve inverse property. This video explains how to use Algebra Tiles to illustrate this mathematical property.
Do you need a new strategy for teaching adding polynomials? This video illustrates a concrete method to help students understand adding polynomials using Algebra Tiles.
Now that your students are becoming proficient at adding polynomials, it's time for subtracting polynomials using Algebra Tiles.
Hopefully with Algebra Tiles your students are doing well on adding and subtrating polynomials. The next step is to multiply polynomials. In this short video gives you some ideas using a couple of examples with the tiles!
Factoring, one of the hardest concepts for students to understand. This first video will start with simple examples of factoring with Algebra Tiles.
Time for a bit harder factoring examples using Algebra Tiles. Most students have problems understanding how the middle term was derived. With concrete examples it will make more sense for your students.
In this last video on factoring we show an example that involves bringing in extra zero pairs in order to find the factors. Factoring can be fun with Algebra Tiles!
