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)
Rationale:
• Students will relate a multiplication problem represented in numerical form to the same problem represented with algebra tiles.
