Description:

This online manipulative enables the student to explore the meaning of multiplication with variables. The student arranges tiles representing variables and the values one and five on a work space. This array representation can be used to model multiplication problems such as x(y + 2) and division problems. The size of the variables can be changed with a slide bar. Instructions for using the manipulative, eight activities with a lesson plan, and a link to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standard for algebra are included.
