              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

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
