## Factoring Intro

http://youtu.be/zEdUToxYRVU The polynomial 2x + 8 can be modeled by the rectangle below. Step 1 Gather the appropriate tiles. Step 2 Arrange the tiles in the shape of a rectangle.   Thus, 2x2 + 8 can be factored into 2(x + 4) . To check, simply use the distributive property to see if you get the [...]

## Multiply Binomials

Stacie Bender 8/20/14 Algebra tiles have been available for years. Positives: They can make the abstract more concrete. They help both visual and kinesthetic learners understand the concepts of Algebra. Negatives: It can be costly to acquire enough tiles for classrooms to share. They require maintenance in getting the tiles back into the bags in the [...]

## Algebra

[soliloquy slug="why-algebra-slider"] Recognizing Patterns helps form an argument for the use of Algebra. While generating values based on the previous value is possible, it is time-consuming and tedious. Equations and Expressions explains some key terminology and nuances like implied multiplication, declaration of variables and guess and check method for solving equations. Order of Operations describes how [...]
