This foldable is designed for interactive math notebooks.
It walks students through understanding how to multiply a polynomial by a monomial. The front of the foldable is designed for guided practice as far as understanding that you MULTIPLY the coefficients and ADD the exponents. After I went over that part, I gave my students 5 minutes to complete the 6 problems under that tab. Students are at that time practice to distribute and use all previous skills learned when multiplying monomials. Combining like terms is also used in the last two problems.
The second tab contains 2 equations in which distributing and working with solving and exponents exists.
The paper should be printed with the shorter side being the flipping side. Students will fold both sides to the center line.
Answer key included.
