See how successful manipulatives can be in a secondary school classroom. Participants will engage actively in using algebra tiles in a variety of situations. They will explore operations on polynomials all the way through factoring and completing the square. The important part will be transitioning from the concrete (manipulative) to the abstract (paper and pencil).
