Expand Linear Expressions Using the Distributive Property

This Expand Linear Expressions Using the Distributive Property video also includes:

The easiest way to show algebra learners how to expand linear expressions using the distributive property is with an area model. This is the second resource in a series that applies the properties of operations as strategies to develop linear expressions. It shows learners how to change subtraction to addition of a negative and use the commutative property to help gather like terms. The guided practice, extension activities, and quick quiz all come with an answer key found in the Slides.
