This is an introduction to multiplying two binomials using the Distributive Property and FOIL (First, Outer, Inner, Last) Method. There is also an activity on multiplying binomials using the Box (Four Squares) Method.
This lesson plan includes a warm-up activity, minilesson with guided steps through the process, examples, class activities and a worksheet for homework. Answer keys included.
Common Core standards for High School Algebra and 6th- and 7th-grade math are included on the cover page.
This lesson is part of a Unit Plan: "Multiplying Binomials and Factoring Trinomials Unit Plan" which can be found here:
I also have a second lesson plan (Multiplying Binomials Using FOIL, Pt. II) that includes more practice with FOIL with more challenging examples.
