## How Can a Box Help My Students with Multiplying Polynomials?

For most of my students, multiplying polynomials is not a difficult procedure to understand. Students quickly grasp the idea that each term in the first polynomial must be multiplied by each term in the second polynomial. The difficulty, however, lies in the organization of the product's terms for ease in combining like terms and in the accuracy of having multiplied all of the appropriate subproducts. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how a box can help students with both of these aspects.

## But What if the Goal is to Model with Mathematics?

odeling mathematics has a longstanding tradition in the mathematics classroom, as teachers often engage students in representing mathematical ideas. For example, students can be seen using base-ten blocks to model a number or drawing an array to represent a multiplication fact. Modeling a mathematical idea in this way, however, does not necessarily meet the expectations described in the fourth of the Common Core's Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP 4): Model with mathematics, which states that students should “apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace” (CCSSI 2010, p. 7). Although the SMP provide a detailed description of modeling with mathematics, Bleiler-Baxter et al. (2017) found it useful to consider three decision-making processes embedded within the modeling process.
