Solving Equations Using Algebra Tiles

Turn equations into an activity and break out those algebra tiles! The video goes through each problem first with the traditional way of solving equations and then introduces the tiles to solve with the same steps side by side. This lesson is a great way to introduce the tiles to your classroom and use the skills they already know to solve equations.  Learners start small with a one-step equation and end with variables on both sides of the equation.
