This lesson is meant to be used as guided notes for a whole class, with an activity at the end.
Students begin by reviewing the distributive property and then using this to multiply polynomials by monomials. Next, they learn how to model these products with algebra tiles. They then work on taking it a step further by finding products and then combining like terms. At the end of the guided notes, there is a quick intro to solving equations with algebra tiles. Finally, there is an activity/assignment/assessment on multiplying polynomials by monomials with algebra tiles.
The last 2 pages are a copy of the key for the guided notes.
