Moving Math Forward: Virtual Middle School Math Conference

I am so incredibly excited to be presenting at the Moving Math Forward conference this summer.  My session "Using Algebra Tiles in Middle School Math" will cover integers (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing), solving equations, simplifying expressions, multiplying polynomials and factoring quadratics. My daughter will make an appearance to help with a prime vs. composite numbers investigation using tiles. I also recorded a short section on how to turn paper algebra tiles into durable tiles that will last for years.

UPDATE: If you missed the conference, you can still learn a little about algebra tiles in the algebra tile posts I have written on my blog.

Also, if you'd be interested in a training on algebra tiles, please either leave a comment or send me an email. I've been thinking about something... :)

I am so incredibly excited to be presenting at the Moving Math Forward conference this summer. 

My session "Using Algebra Tiles in Middle School Math" will cover integers (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing), solving equations, simplifying expressions, multiplying polynomials and factoring quadratics. My daughter will make an appearance to help with a prime vs. composite numbers investigation using tiles. I also recorded a short section on how to turn the paper algebra tiles from the resources file into durable tiles that will last for years.

Using Algebra Tiles in Middle School Math

How it works:

Our sessions are pre-recorded so that we can close-caption and edit our videos to jam pack them with information. A resource file will also be shared. 

In my section of the resource file will be a set of printable algebra tiles and all of the algebra tile mats I use throughout the video. These mats can be given to students in page protectors to use at their desks or you can use the mats to teach either remotely from home or under a document camera back at school.

We will each be holding a live Q&A session in the Moving Math Forward Facebook group. This link will be sent to all participants.

If you would like to read about all of the sessions, you can do that here:




Can't watch in real-time? Not to worry! The videos will all be available to watch for 3 months after June 22.




Did you miss the MMF conference? Not to worry!





A replay ticket will be available to purchase from June 26 through June 28. You will get access to all the videos, all recordings of the live Q&As and all of the resources that go along with our presentations.



I hope to see you!
