PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is used to provide the students with practice multiplying binomials as well as factoring trinomials. It is a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that has 5 different versions, so you can use it over and over without the students catching on.

Preparation:
[1] Simply print one version at a time onto 4 to 8 different color pieces of paper. [1a] If you can have the sheets laminated, it will increase the durability of the triangle pieces. [2] Cut out the triangles (of have a student cut them out - they love to do that kind of thing). [4] Take all the pieces and place them in a small envelopes, one envelope per color.

Implementation:
[1] Divide the students into small groups (heterogeneous is always best). [2] Give each group an envelope and have them use their brains / notes / book to pieces the triangles together. [3] When all the groups are done, you can display the original PowerPoint slide that corresponds to the version you are using. Have the students check their work.

[4] Most importantly, have the students write down their decision making processes: did they use variables to determine a match (type, quantity or combination); did they use sign order; did they multiply the binomials and match; did they compare middle terms of the trinomials; or, did they just know (intuition is valuable, but make them pick a method that makes sense).

There is also a slide has some blank triangles. If you choose, have students create their own to challenge each other.

Have Fun!
