#### Storyboard Text

• Catalina's Crisis
• This binomial is too hard for me:  (7x+8)(2x+6)
• Trey to the rescue ﻿
• I heard you need help. The answer is easy if you learn how to FOIL.﻿
• Can you show me how?  I'm so frustrated!
• FOIL is a mnemonic that stands for First, Outer, Inner, and Last.
• Let's get started over lunch
• Catalina is struggling with a math problem. ﻿
• "F" stands for FIRST
• First, we multiply 7x and 2x
• Trey came from behind the tree and asked ﻿to help Catalina out with math.
• How are we doing?﻿
• Are you feeling better about the topic?﻿
• Trey tells her about FOILING and she is interested to learn.
• ﻿"O" stand for OUTER
• Trey explains the First step in solving the problem
• ﻿
• Well that is easy. That solves to 14x^2
• Trey checks in with Catalina ﻿
• Not yet, tell me more﻿
• ﻿Trey explains the Outer step in solving the problem.
• ﻿Now we multiply the Outer- 7x and 6. What do you get?
