Lesson Plan: Multiplying an Algebraic Expression by a Monomial Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to multiply an algebraic expression by a monomial.


Students will be able to

  • multiply algebraic expressions by monomials,
  • solve word problems by multiplying algebraic expressions by monomials,
  • find unknowns by multiplying a monomial by an algebraic expression and then by comparing them with the final simplified expression.


Students should already be familiar with

  • multiplying monomials,
  • multiterm and high-order algebraic expressions,
  • the distributive property of multiplication,
  • combining like terms.


Students will not cover

  • dividing algebraic expressions by monomials,
  • multiplying two polynomials,
  • questions involving only monomials.
