Factorising Quadratics ax^2 + bx + c

Students learn how to factorise quadratics in the form ax2 + bx + c involving positive and negative terms into two brackets.  As learning progresses they consider non-prime coefficient of x2.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to factorise a quadratic where the coefficient of x squared is a prime number and the constant is a positive integer.
  • Most students should be able to factorise a quadratic where the coefficient of x squared is a prime number and the constant is a positive or negative integer.
  • Some students should be able to factorise a quadratic where the coefficient of x squared is a non prime number and the constant is a positive or negative integer

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
