Algebraic Concepts – Using Algebra Tiles to Model Algebraic Equations

Algebra Tiles and Modeling Equations

For FREE access to this lesson, select your course from the categories below.

Students learn to represent equations using algebra tiles. A green rectangular tile represents a positive variable, a red rectangular tile represents a negative variable, a large blue square tile represents a positive variable squared, a large red square tile represents a negative variable squared, a small yellow square tile represents a positive constant, and a small red square tile represents a negative constant. For example, the equation 4x + 2 = 10 can be represented as four green rectangular tiles, two small yellow square tiles, an equals sign, and ten small yellow square tiles. Students also learn to model the solution to a given equation by getting a green rectangular tile by itself on one side of the equation.
