This lesson teaches students how to multiply two binomials using two different methods, FOIL and the Smiley Face method. FOIL stands for First, Outer, Inner, Last, and the Smiley Face method involves drawing a smiley face and placing the terms in the correct position. Both methods will result in the same answer, as demonstrated in the examples given. These methods only work with two binomials, but the box method can be used for other types of multiplication.
