              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.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
