### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students develop a concrete understanding of the Distributive Property and combining like terms with these discovery worksheets. First, students use area and length models to find the area of a rectangle as a sum and as a product, resulting in the discovery of the Distributive Property. Students will also understand how to factor out a greatest common factor from a binomial. Second, students will observe pictorial representations to write verbal and algebraic expressions that result in a deeper understanding of how to combine like terms. Finally, there is an extension activity that provides five practice problems for simplifying algebraic expressions involving Distributive Property and collecting like terms.

Included:
-4 pages of discovery worksheets
-1/2 page extension
-Teacher's Guide w/ CCSS, objectives, materials, & procedure
