This lesson uses a series of related arithmetic experiences to prompt students to generalize into more abstract ideas. In particular, students explore arithmetic statements leading to a result that is the factoring pattern for the difference of two squares. An excellent teaching idea on how to help students walk the bridge from arithmetic to algebra.
