Handouts Using Algebra Tiles from Polynomials to Factoring Handout.pdf


Learn how to make factoring into a concrete visual experience for students. Teachers will have a chance to explore algebra tiles and learn how to use them to show both algebraic multiplication and factoring. Diamond problems and generic rectangles will help move from the concrete to the abstract. Polynomial division will be shown using rectangles.
