### 8.2A Using the Distributive Property

Standard(s):

• A.SSE.2 : Use the structure of an expression to identify and ways to rewrite it.
• A.SSE.3.a. Choose and produce an equivalent form of an expression to reveal and explain properties of the quantity represented by the expression. Factor a quadratic expression to reveal the zeros of the function it defines.

Essential Question:

• Why structure expressions in different ways?

Learning Target:

• I can identify a greatest common factor. (Blooms Level: Applying)
• I can factor a greatest common factor out of a polynomial. (Blooms Level: Applying)
• I can identify common terms when factoring. (Blooms Level: Remembering)
