Multiplying Polynomials Using Algebra Tiles
Tiles are not just for algebra—see how they can help with multiplication too. Young mathematicians learn to use algebra tiles to model the multiplication of polynomials. A follow-up worksheet provides practice with the skill.
8th - 10th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Without ever relying on the FOIL trick, this presentation carefully walks young algebrists through multiplying binomials by a monomial and by each other. Examples start easy, but move into complicated pairings of coefficients, positives...
