              Factorising Expressions into a Pair of Brackets

              Students learn how to factorise an algebraic expression into a pair of brackets using the highest common factor.  As learning progresses students are challenged to factorise expressions involving multiple unknowns and powers.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to factorise an expression in the form ax ± c
              • Most students should be able to factorise an expression in the form ax ± by
              • Some students should be able to factorise an expression involving powers.

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              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 […]
