    I really like looking at the Algebra this way. It allows students to access the math in many different ways that are all correct and it allows them to see a physical representation of squaring, mutliplying, adding, subtracting, etc. and connect them all together. I think this would be a great way to start a lesson on Polynomials and it would certainly spark curiosity. In addition, it’s easier to refer back to “remember when we did that problem with the hearts?” than “remember when I drew those squares on the board?” when you are trying to call on prior knowledge!
