Factorising algebraic expressions with powers

When factorising algebraic expressions with powers students often struggle to identify the highest common factor when it involves an algebraic term. For example, factorising 3h + 12 as 3(h + 4) is attempted correctly much more often than factorising 3h2 + 12h as 3h(h + 4). In this lesson students learn how to identify the […]

Extending transformations beyond shapes on a grid

While I was teaching a higher GCSE class about  Reflections, Rotations and Translations  I wanted to explore extending transformations beyond shapes on a grid to include transforming straight line graphs. About forty minutes into the lesson on reflections the majority of the students were quietly working their way through the activities.  The class were well […]
