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

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
