GXWeb Algebra Tiles Jigsaw
Explore the Meaningful Algebra Collection
Do you know how to use algebra tiles to tell if an expression can be factored?
Just see if you can rearrange all the tiles to form a complete rectangle!
Think about factors of algebraic expressions: for example, consider \(3\cdot (x + 1)\), \((2\cdot x + 1)^2\) and even \((2\cdot x - 1)^2\).
Enter algebraic expressions and equations by dragging tiles onto the table above, or using the function boxes below. Then just tap the \(f(x)\) button!
Use the Equation Mode button before dragging the two parts of an equation.
Use the other control buttons to focus on the different representations of your algebraic object (model, table - even musical!).
The CAS Toolkit will help you explore other forms of your object.
