#### Home / Interactive Lessons / Algebra / GCSE / Year 10 Term 2

In this mathematics lesson students learn how to solve quadratic inequalities by identifying the roots to sketch the graphs.  As learning progresses they are challenged to identify regions on a grid the correct algebraic notation.  The start of the lesson is used ot recap solving simple quadratics using factorisation and the balance method.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to solve a quadratic inequality using the balance method.
• Most students should be able to solve a quadratic inequality in the form by factorising.
• Some students should be able to solve a quadratic inequality with non-integer roots using the formula.
