Solving Complex Quadratics by Factorising

In this mathematics lesson students learn how to solve quadratics in the form ax2+ bx + c = 0 through factorisation.  As learning progresses the factorisation becomes more challenging as the coeffecient of x2is no longer a prime number.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to solve a quadratic in the form ax2 + bx + c = 0 where a is prime and b and c are both positive.
  • Most students should be able to solve a quadratic in the form ax2+ bx + c = 0 where a is prime.
  • Some students should be able to solve a quadratic in the form ax2 + bx + c = 0 where is not prime.

Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
