## Reflection: Trust and Respect Multiplying Polynomials - Part II - Section 4: Group Activity: Four in a Row

Four in a Row is a game that students always enjoy. It is a fun way for them to practice multiplying polynomials and they tend to get into the competition aspect of it. I am always careful to create teams that are as equal as possible to ensure that struggling students do not overwhelmed and give up. If you have pairs that you know are not as strong, you can choose to give them easier problems to keep them engaged in the game. Be warned that the teacher will be busy checking answers so will not be able to help students much.  Therefore,  it is important to check for understanding during the guided practice to ensure that students will be able to work independently.
