This unit corresponds with the 8th grade OER (Open Educational Resource) created by Utah Middle School Math Project (http://utahmiddleschoolmath.org/8th-grade/student-materials.shtml). This unit includes animated PowerPoints that demonstrate how Algebra tiles work when representing algebraic expressions and solving algebraic equations. These PowerPoints create clear connections between the concrete model (algebra tiles) and the algebraic process. This unit also includes two interactive foldable notes (Solving Equations and Types of Solutions), card sorts to make the practice more interesting and group oriented, a Jeopardy review game, learning target posters that can be displayed in the classroom, and word wall strips for relevant terms.
Please see the preview document for a specific day-by-day planning guide and description of what is included in this unit. This guide also gives you insight into the homework that can be assigned from the Utah pages.
This unit includes over $20 worth of materials if sold separately.
