How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
