Teaching with Algebra Tiles: Distribution and Factoring


Distribution and Factoring are essential algebraic skills needed when furthering one's study of mathematics and too often they are condensed into a set of procedural instructions. In this course we aim to offer pupils the opportunity not only to conceptualise these key ideas, but as the teacher, to think carefully about the links to other areas of mathematics.
