              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.

              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 […]
