This activity takes cut and paste to the next level! The matrix works like a multiplication chart for expanding algebraic expressions but some information is missing, requiring student to also have to factor algebraic expressions. There are extra answers included to give your student and extra challenge! Having to do double the math makes this activity a great bang for it's buck! For after the activity, reflection questions are included to get students to dive deeper into the content. These questions can also be used as a formative assessment to gauge each students level of understanding. The final reflection asks students to self-reflect and rate how well they feel they are understanding the concepts of factoring and expanding to create equivalent algebraic expressions.
