In part 5 of this this 5-part series, Erica Mason from the University of Missouri shows how you can use manipulatives and multiple representations to teach all students how to factor quadratic expressions. Factoring quadratic expressions can be a challenging and abstract concept for students to learn – but it doesn’t have to be.

In part 3 of this 4 part video, Erica Mason from the University of Missouri shows teachers how they can use algebra blocks to make the abstract concepts of multiplying terms concrete and easier to understand for all students. In this video, Erica uses Algebra Lab Gear manipulatives, and the work is based off of research by Tricia Strickland.

Moving to the abstract concepts can be challenging for many kids, but can be especially challenging for those students who struggle in math.
