              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.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
