#### Expanding and factorising Quadratic equations Higher GCSE revision mat

A revision mat on expanding and factorising quadratic equations. I have used as part of a DIRT lesson along with the other mats I have uploaded where pupils select the revision mat that they need to work on. Could also be used as homework. Feedback appreciate

#### Practice Solving Graphical Simultaneous Equations and Roots Interactive Spreadsheet

An Excel Workbook containing two spreadsheets to practice the GCSE skills of solving Simultaneous Equations graphically and using the roots of an equation. There is an associated answer sheet going through each simultaneous equation question. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!

#### Factorising expressions into one set of brackets differentiated worksheet

For lower ability groups, this has been a life-saver. I have also used it as a starter or a recap activity for higher ability classes also where it has proved to be very effective. The worksheet is differentiated into green, amber, red, challenge, super challenge and builds the confidence of the students by filling in easy gaps first, then increasing the difficulty until they can factorise with no clues at all.
