This activity is good for helping students who are working on equivalent expressions that involve Distributive Property. This can be used in a unit where the topic is being newly introduced, or as a way to refresh students who have learned it previously.
Students are required to match 14 sets of three: one area model, one factored expression, and one expanded expression. There are also 8 cards that require them to take the expanded expression and write the factored expression with the area model. Additionally, students are asked to create 2 of their own.
A student recording sheet and answer key are included with this activity.
