              Expanding Quadratics

              Students learn how to expand the product of two brackets using the 'FOIL' method.  As learning progresses they apply their learning to calculate the area of rectangles and triangles with algebraic lengths.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to expand and simplify two brackets in the form (x+a)(x+b).
              • Most students should be able to expand and simplify two brackets in the form (x±a)(x±b).
              • Some students should be able to expand and simplify two brackets in the form (ax±c)(bx±d)

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
