Students learn how to factorise quadratics in the form x2 + bx + c into two brackets.

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.
