              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.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
