Decompose a Factor

Mental multiplication just got easier! Clue your class into this multiplication shortcut as they decompose factors and add smaller products. For the first set of problems, they read the instructions, view an example, and then break down four equations into partial products. Then, students complete the same process with two equations of their own, explaining their thinking. An example is also given for this, including a written explanation of the process.
