How I Use It
Get your class set up in the computer lab or laptop lab. I usually show the class in a previous lesson how to use algebra tiles to simplify expressions and solve equations. I use the site to show them that they can access it at home.
My Take
This site has loads of virtual manipulatives. I particularly think the algebra tiles part is worth having a look. It would be great if they could get the algebra tiles working with ipads.
