PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The attached document is an entire unit using algebra tiles to solve one-variable equations. It works through each type of equation making sure students have plenty of practice with two-step equations, variables on both sides, and multi-step equations. Each part includes a set of problems designed for students to work on in groups and then a practice worksheet that forces students to practice with algebra tiles. Detailed answer keys are provided that show what is expected of the students. By using manipulatives and concrete examples, students excel at understanding inverse operations and what a solution to an equation really represents. Here is the list of the progression of parts in this unit:

Algebra Tiles: Solving Equations
Intro: Scales Problems
Part 1: Solving Two-Step Equations
Part 2: Solving Two-Step Equations with Negatives
Part 3: Practicing Solving Two-Step Equations (this is just a practice work sheet)
