This is the Google Slides version of my original Paper Multiplying Polynomials Riddle.
2 questions per page, this resource includes tables for typing work, purple rectangles for indicating "like terms" to combine, and pink circles for indicating each term in the final answer. Teachers can use hearts (or substitute with their own emoji/bitmoji) to indicate correct answers and green circles to indicate incorrect work.
This puzzle is a great way for Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2 students to practice the challenges / special cases in multiplying polynomials:
- Conjugates (Difference of Squares)
- Squared Binomials
- A Binomial times a Trinomial
- A Monomial times a Trionomial
- Area Applications
I always use boxes to teach students how to multiply polynomials. A good alternative to FOIL, students can apply boxes to any number of terms.
