Simplifying Algebraic Products

Students learn how to simplify algebraic products using the rules of indices and basic algebraic notation.  As learning progresses students begin to apply their learning to evaluate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to simplify the product and quotient of an unknown and number.
  • Most students should be able to simplify a product and quotient involving powers.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the area of a rectangle with algebraic lengths.
