              Factorising Quadratics

              Students learn how to factorise quadratics in the form x2 + bx + c into two brackets with a mixture of negative and positive terms.  As the learning progresses students begin to use the difference of two squares to factorise quadratics with a zero x term.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to factorise quadratics in the form ax2+bx+c where a = 1 and both factors are positive.
              • Most students should be able to factorise quadratics in the form ax2+bx+c where a = 1 and either or both factors are negative.
              • Some students should be able to factorise quadratics using the difference of two squares.

              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 […]
