Algebra Tiles - A Virtual Manipulatives
Add tiles to the workspace
Click on any of the buttons below the workspace to add a tile to the workspace. Drag the tile to the desired location on the workspace. Dragging a tile to the left or bottom axes will make it a factor of a product you are representing.
Move your mouse over the corner of a tile. A round dot will appear that can be used to rotate the tile by moving the mouse in a circular motion. When you release the mouse
Fifteen Puzzle - A Virtual Manipulative
The goal of this puzzle is to rearrange the fifteen numbered tiles to make a particular pattern.
There are fifteen numbered tiles and one blank space. The tiles are moved around by clicking on a tile next to the blank space (with one edge next to the blank) to slide it into the blank spot.

-Use your guess to decide what the remaining entries of the table shoul
Algebra Balance Scales - A Virtual Manipulative
This virtual manipulative allows you to solve simple linear equations through the use of a balance beam. Unit blocks (representing 1s) and X-boxes (for the unknown, X), are placed on the pans of a balance beam. Once the beam balances to represent the given linear equation, you can choose to perform any arithmetic operation, as long as you DO THE SAME THING TO BOTH SIDES, thus keeping the beam balanced. The goal, of course, is to get a single X-box on one side, with however many unit blocks neede
