Algebra Tiles Handout

Use algebra tiles to model division of polynomials .

Divide x 2 + 4x + 4 by x + 3 using the following steps:

1) Use algebra tiles to model x2 + 4x + 4. (Draw model below)

2) Use the tiles to create a length of x + 3. ( Draw below )

3) Keeping x + 3 as the length, try to create a rectangle that uses all the tiles from step
1. ( Draw below ) Explain whether or not all tiles can be used and why or why not.
