Inside this pack of algebra tiles printables is everything you need to bring algebra tiles into your middle school math classroom, including:

⬢ Printable double-sided algebra tiles with + and - sides

⬢ Printable mats for:

-solving equations,

-simplifying expressions,

-adding, subtracting multiplying and dividing integers,

-multiplying polynomials and

-factoring quadratics

When in the classroom, the mats in this download can be placed inside page protectors so that students can write on them with dry-erase markers as they practice with their tiles.

When teaching remotely, the algebra tiles can be used during lessons to model the topics covered.

I like using algebra tiles as a way to "prove" to students that numbers are concrete and can be manipulated, much like building blocks! I like to use them as part of an introduction of a topic to give students a different perspective on the math we are learning.

*These resources were originally part of the Moving Math Forward conference held remotely in July 2020.
