The University of Arizona: CPM Spotlight Session #2 – Using Algebra Tiles to Build Conceptual Understanding of Expressions and Equations (Middle School)

In this session, participants will practice a series of problems they can use with students to build their conceptual understanding of simplifying algebraic expressions and solving equations. A series of problems from student lessons are included in the handout, beginning with problems that introduce algebra tiles. Algebra tiles are used throughout the rest of the problems to obtain the lesson objectives which include determining perimeter, combining like terms of algebraic expressions, comparing expressions, and solving equations. Participants for this session will benefit from practicing the problems in teams while experiencing the facilitation and questioning in a student-centered classroom.
