Resources for Teaching Math: Algebra Tiles

Try this hands-on approach to solving algebra problems with this interactive website. Students are able to solve equations, substitute in variable expressions, expand, and factor. Constants and variables are represented as tiles so students can manipulate them to solve the problem. By manipulating the tiles, students can get a hands-on approach that may allow them to have a better understanding of algebra. The site has four modes for students to use: solve, substitute, expand and factor. Students can also challenge themselves by using the exploration tab of the interactive site.
