              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

              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 […]
