              Factorising Expressions

              Students learn how to factorise algebraic expressions using the highest common factor and basic algebraic notation.  As learning progresses they are challenged to investigate possible perimeters for a rectangles with algebraic lengths.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to fully factorise an algebraic expression in the form ax+b where a and b are both constants.
              • Most students should be able to fully factorise an algebraic expression in the form ax2+bx where a and b are both constants.
              • Some students should be able to fully factorise an algebraic expression the form ax2y + bxy2 where a and b are both constants.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]
