Distributive Property with Variables- This video demonstrates how algebra tiles are used to generate equivalent expressions using the distributive property. In the accompanying classroom activity, students explore the distributive property. They use algebra tiles to solve problems involving equivalent expressions and compare their solution strategies with the approach demonstrated in the video. Students then solve story problems in which they generate equivalent expressions.
