    I use the technique that Jon shows in his video! I start with multiplying binomials to find area since students are familiar with length x width gives you the area of the rectangle (how I start the distributive property – FOIL – arrays). Afterward, I have students rearrange tiles into a rectangle and find side lengths without using the word factor.
