Students learn how to solve quadratics in the form ax^{2}+ bx + c = 0 by factorising.

As learning progresses, the factorisation becomes more challenging as the coefficient of x^{2}is no longer a prime number.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to solve a quadratic in the form ax
^{2}+ 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 ax
^{2}+ bx + c = 0 where a is prime. - Some students should be able to solve a quadratic in the form ax
^{2}+ bx + c = 0 where is not prime.
