We know from research that having visual representations helps students develop conceptual understanding of algebraic topics. Algebra Tiles help students represent and solve algebra problems using tiles to represent variables and constants. The game consists of solving equations for x, substituting in variable expressions, and expanding and factoring equations. Some of the functions that the app has are the ability to remove zero pairs, rearrange tiles to help visualize the expressions, and add and take away tiles. Other functions:
Selecting tiles of opposite but equal value will be removed.
Copying tiles - Selected tile will be duplicated
Negating the value of tiles - Selected tiles will have their values changed from positive to negative or negative to positive.
Fixed a bug that was incorrectly parsing

Good idea but doesn't work
The app could be useful. Unfortunately, like another user said, the app doesn't quite work, there's no help menu, and the instructions reference functions that aren't available.
This is a good start but it is buggy. Sometimes the buttons don't work and the directions talk about buttons that aren't there
does not work
Have been looking for an app that does exactly what this one promises to alleviate the time of passing out manipulatives and losing them. but, that's all this app is, a promise. Does not work correctly. I have tried many different things within the various categories and it keeps telling me my work and answer are incorrect and in know they aren't. Has the potential to be a great app, but right now only a good concept.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
