Algebra tiles are awesome for introducing and practicing so many topics in math. This download is a simple mat that students can use to organize their tiles when solving equations. There is a recycling bin in the bottom corner that students can use to sweep away the tiles they are no longer using.
I slipped the mat into a dry-erase pocket so that I could use it more than once.
Do you use algebra tiles? There is a post linked inside the file with 3 examples for using algebra tiles. There is also a link in there to the free set of paper tiles I used in the post.
