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.

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
