 Algebra tiles
 Music
 Whiteboards and markers (optional)
 Students create a design using algebra tiles.
 Play music and have students circulate.
 When the music stops students must sit at a desk and simplify another students design using the zero principle.
 Students write the resulting polynomial on the whiteboard and identify as a monomial, binomial or trinomial.
 Repeat the same activity at the new desk or as an extension you could ask them to create a design that simplifies to a particular polynomial expresssion. (eg. x^{2}  3x + 4)
