Students come to us with a working knowledge and procedural skill set rooted in the use of area models. Learn how to tap into that knowledge to teach a range of topics, including multiplication and factoring polynomials, and as an alternative to synthetic division and long division of polynomials.
Through the use of a mathematical model, participants will move from using area models to the tabular method as a means to multiply, factor, and divide whole numbers and polynomials.
AREAS OF FOCUS
During this 30-minute webinar, the following questions will be answered:
- What is the area model/tabular method?
- How can I use the area model/tabular method to teach distribution, multiplying and factoring polynomials, and division of polynomials.
- How is the area model used in earlier grades in Eureka Math/EngageNY Math?
