Pairs use algebra tiles to concretely solve, and explain each step in solving, multi-step, linear, algebra equations. They then explain each step in their solving strategy to the class as the teacher connects the algebraic process in each step.  
Challenge your class to complete word problems using algebra tiles about completing the square. Students complete 16 problems. Note: The answer key is not included.
Turn equations into an activity and break out those algebra tiles! The video goes through each problem first with the traditional way of solving equations and then introduces the tiles to solve with the same steps side by side. This lesson is a great way to introduce the tiles to your classroom and use the skills they already know to solve equations.  Learners start small with a one-step equation and end with variables on both sides of the equation. 
Middle schoolers will identify the parts of an algebraic expression by telling the number of terms in one expression. Then they will collect like terms and solve three problems. Next, they will complete a table involving three sets of algebra tile displays, evaluating each with a given value of x. In all they will solve 4 application problems. Answer key is not included.
Represent 10 algebraic equations using algebra tiles using this hands-on activity sheet.  Your class will solve 10 algebraic equations using the algebra tiles.
Students participate in a lesson that focuses on the concepts of combining monomials to make polynomial expressions. They use algebra tiles to complete the exercises in the lesson. This is hands-on learning with successive problem solving involved.
Young scholars multiply and factor polynomials through the usage of Algebra tiles.
Students add and subtract polynomials. In this algebra instructional activity, students use algebra tiles to perform operation of polynomials. They model their problems and understand how to combine like terms using tiles.
Ask your students to solve linear equations by looking at 8 different problems related to solving various types of linear equations. First, they define inverse operations and compare the 2 methods show to solve the equation. Then, they describe how the processes are similar and how they are different. Finally, they use algebra tiles to model the process of solving each equation and sketching the model.
There are three parts to this lesson on integers. In the first, learners explore positive and negative numbers on an actual painter's tape number line and by playing a "Hot Seat" game. In part two, they view a BrainPop video and work with Algebra tiles to consider the addition and subtraction of integers. Finally, the investigate how to multiply and divide integers. This resource is chock-full of ideas, video links, and printable practice pages for you to use in a unit on integers!
In this exploring integer models learning exercise, students solve 8 various types of problems that include exploring integers and expressions. First, they build given expressions using algebra tiles, circle zero pairs, and state the final answer. Then, students model the given expressions using a number line and record their answer.
Operations and polynomials are the focus of this activity. 9th graders will solve 14 different problems related to operations on various types of polynomials. First, they determine the perimeter of an entire lot by finding the like terms and simplifying using algebra tiles. Then, they will use the floor plan at the bottom to find the perimeter of a new home, including the areas of each room in the home.
Sixth graders work with mathematical expressions by interpreting, analyzing and problem solving with them. In this two step algebraic problem solving lesson, 6th graders use algebra tiles to solve equations.
Students use algebra tiles to solve linear equations with integer solutions. In this algebra lesson plan, students use the additive inverse and the zero pair concept.
Sixth graders evaluate algebraic expressions. In this introduction to algebra lesson plan, 6th graders use manipulatives (algebra tiles) to solve problems involving one and two variables. Students apply this knowledge to real life situations and across the curriculum.
Students investigate the concept of manipulating polynomials. They go through the process of using algebra tiles in order to practice grouping of like terms and model the solving process.
Sixth graders solve multiple step math problems. In this problem solving lesson, 6th graders practice following step by step instructions such as making cookies or building a snowman. Students use algebra tiles and draw pictures to solve two step equations.
Solve twenty-five adding and subtracting integers problems.  Middle schoolers will draw diagrams using algebra tiles for four of the problems.  Two examples are provided.
Young mathematicians examine the "Tic-tac-toe" factoring method to factor polynomials. They use algebra tiles to model solutions of binomial multiplication problems. They discuss strategies and observe teacher-made models for solving trinomials. 
Students participate in a lesson that is concerned with the solving of multiple step equations and inequalities. The use of algebra tiles translates the information well for the kinesthetic learners. Then the skills are used to solve the problems on paper.
