Includes digital book with virtual algebra tiles for IWB
by Don Balka and Laurie Boswell
This new book is a complete resource for using algebra tiles to help students visualize algebra, build and solve equations, and gain comfort and skill with algebraic expressions.
Teacher's notes and reproducible activities cover integer operations, linear expressions, quadratic expressons, perimeter, arrays, binomials and more. Each topic progresses through: objective, prerequisites, getting started and closing the activity.
The accompanying CD includes a digital version of the book that teachers can use to display pages using an Interactive Whiteboard or computer and projector. Teachers can highlight and add notes to the pages, print activities, zoom to specific problems and more. In addition to the digital book, the CD includes virtual algebra tiles to drag and drop into the activities.
