Distributive Property Matrix Multiplication (1)

This interactive Java learning tool allows a teacher to demonstrate and explore the distributive property with expressions in the factored form (a + b) (c + d) using a matrix multiplication method with students. Sliders determine the number values from 20 to -20 with increments of one-tenth. Check boxes show or hide the factored form, starting matrix values, matrix, products in the matrix, and solution.
