Product Description
Have any of your students ever struggled to visualize a representation for algebraic expressions? I have designed this unit bundle to help your students develop a concrete understanding of variables, multiples, and unit values. This unit uses algebra tiles to model expressions, therefore giving students a tangible foundation to understand what is being represented with numbers and letters in algebraic expressions.
This unit is organized into three days of activities. The first day familiarizes the students with algebra tiles through an interactive Power Point presentation. The second day engages the students with a game-like format activity. The students will identify equivalent expressions by building models of each expression and comparing their values. The third day incorporates an interactive notebook foldable along with another game-like activity. Students look at three different strategies to help generate an equivalent expression for a given model. Both days include teacher instructions, student work samples, exit tickets, and answer keys. In addition, if you don't have access to algebra tile manipulatives, I've included printable versions that can be used for all the activities. The following is a detailed list of all components for this unit bundle:
