This multi-day resource is intended to support students in first using an area model to understand the distributive principle for multiplying two binomials together and then using this same model to factor expressions given in standard form. In each part students work forward to expand expressions in parenthesis and then apply the patterns they noticed to work backwards to factor expressions in standard form.
