Introduction: Students use grids of virtual algebra tiles to interpret and solve binomial multiplication problems of the form (x +

*b*)(x +*d*), where*b*and/or*d*is positive. Students build grids whose dimensions correspond to the binomial factors and then find and add the partial products to determine the overall product. Part A: Poster presentation Lesson Title: Factor Kids Grade Level: Grade 8 to 10 (Secondary Education) Learning objective(s):- Students will find the products of two binomials using a grid of algebra tiles.
- Students will use virtual algebra tiles to expand binomial multiplication problems of the form (x +
*b*)(x +*d*), where*b*and/or*d*is positive. - Teacher cab design Factors Kids for x^2+bx+c of the form (x+a1)(x+a2)

- Students will relate a multiplication problem represented in numerical form to the same problem represented with algebra tiles.
