From White Rose Maths – new digital tools are free for use by teachers and parents. You can watch the short webinars introducing their first two new interactive tools – Place Value Charts & Algebra Tiles – scroll down to the Resources and CPD collection.
The very clear webinars introduce the key features of the tools.
This is an outstanding resource and very easy to use.
For further information and resources, see this Algebra Tiles collection including an excellent read on the subject with examples which is one of NCETM’s Using Mathematical Representations at KS3 series, Algebra Tiles.
A recent resource on the excellent Purposeful Maths from Martin Green and Phil Bruce using algebra tiles is Completing the Square, under Quadratic Equations in the Algebra resource collection.
Using Algebra Discs from Oxford Education is a series of short videos on doing just that – using Algebra discs for addition and subtraction of integers and collecting like terms.
Resources using Algebra discs:
- Chris McGrane’s Starting Points Maths – Collecting Like Terms from collecting constant terms to lengthy quadratic expressions.
- Phil Bruce – Linear equations with algebra discs.
On Jonathan Hall’s Mathsbot, in the Manipulatives collection, we have Algebra Discs.
