Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU. The outlined content above was added from outside of Formative. 1

Solve It! Is there a square you can cut into smaller squares in three ways? Explain.
Yes, any n-square where n is the product of three perfect squares can be cut into smaller squares in three ways.
No, this only works when n is a perfect square and only creates two ways in which to divied the n-square into squares.  3

• The expression above a fraction bar is called the denominator.
• Multiplying both the numerator and denominator by the same nonzero number results in an equivalent fraction.
• True
• False
