Write two equivalent expressions for the area represented by each block. Let be the side length of each of the large squares and be the side length of each of the small squares.

8.

Each of the problems contains the same number of squares with the dimensions by and by , yet they are not the same size rectangle.

b.

How does this difference affect the expressions that represent the area?

c.

Describe how the arrangement of the squares and rectangles affects the factored form.

Another way to represent a quadratic expression is with an open area model. Each diagram represents both factored and standard form. For each open area model given, find the factored and standard form.

11.

Factor the following quadratic expressions. Use a visual model to assist you as needed.
