# Factoring Polynomials Game

This free math video shows a fun game to play to give practice in making and then factoring polynomials. There is multiplication practice hidden inside this game and it only takes about five minutes!

These “algebra blocks” are made from Base Ten Flats and Rods covered with paper and Mod Podge.

I’m learning how to teach algebra this way from CrewtonRamonesHouseOfMath.com. It’s just amazing how simple it all is when you can see it as a picture!

# Improper Fractions War

Here is a great way to practice comparing fractions with unlike denominators using the least (or lowest) common multiple method. Cuisenaire Rods help make it visually obvious what we are talking about.

Be aware, though, that this is not an activity for those who have just recently been introduced to Cuisenaire Rods or fractions. This should be done after much play/work with both first so that children understand what the rods stand for.

This game idea comes from the Let’s Play Math blog. Here is the specific post: http://letsplaymath.net/2006/12/29/the-game-that-is-worth-1000-worksheets/
