This graphic organizer helps students multiply binomials correctly by double distributing.
I have introduced my students to the "area method", but many of them do not use it. My students want to use the distributive method, but many of them do not remember the method correctly and forget that there are four multiplications. This organizer gives them a foolproof way of double distributing and reminds them to combine like terms.
The graphic organizer includes reference to where the constant and linear terms originate as well. This is helpful to factoring the quadratic expression.
