              Solving Quadratics by Factorising

              Students learn to solve quadratic equations by factorising  when the coefficient of x2 is one.  As learning progresses they are challenged to rearrange quadratics to equal zero and set up and solve equations from known geometrical facts.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to solve a quadratic equation in the form x2+bx+c using factorisation.
              • Most students should be able to solve a quadratic equation in the form x2±bx±c using factorisation.
              • Some students should be able to derive and solve an equation using known geometrical facts.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
