Students add and subtract polynomials. In this algebra lesson, students use algebra tiles to perform operation of polynomials. They model their problems and understand how to combine like terms using tiles.
Challenge your class to complete word problems using algebra tiles about completing the square. Learners complete 16 problems. Note: The answer key is not included.
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.  
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!
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.
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 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.
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.
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 evaluate algebraic expressions. For 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.
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.
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.
High schoolers practice adding polynomials using algebra tiles. Students view a PowerPoint presentation in which they are introduced to the concept of modeling polynomials using a scaled down version of algebra tiles. High schoolers walk through examples then practice on their own.
Students solve linear equations. In this algebra lesson plan, students solve equations using addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. They evaluate and simplify functions.
Students practice solving algebra equations utilizing model tiles.  In this algebra lesson, students observe a clip from the movie Homeward Bound and break the action down into an algebraic equation.  Students solve an algebra problem worksheet using model tiles with their classmates.
Ninth graders investigate multiplication of binomials and factoring of trinomials.  In this Algebra I lesson, 9th graders compare and contrast expansion and factoring using algebra tiles and a TI-89.
Seventh graders investigate the concept of adding and subtracting integers while using algebra tiles as manipulatives that work well for kinesthetic learners. The instructional activity includes dialogue and examples for direct instruction for the teacher to use.
Students use algebra tiles to identify the binomial factors and the graphing calculator to verify the result. In addition, they will identify the x-intercepts and y-intercepts of each trinomial function and explore relationships between the trinomial x2 + bx + c and its factored form (x + m)(x + n).
