This could be a great reenforcement of factors and the distributive law. It
would be most useful after a thorough introduction from a teacher.
It does a great job of showing what a squared polynomial looks like when
factored. Teachers must show students how the products are represented with
this algebra tiles model.
This model could greatly benefit students who do not conceptualize the material
immediately. This tool is very useful for visual learners (with proper
instruction).
I really like the way the eight activities require students to determine factors
and products.
