    This is a well structured resource with plenty of examples, clearly presented. However, for an introduction to the topic for weaker students I've decided to use a grid method as it makes it easier to see why you divide the coefficient of x by 2 and what to do next then follows.

    A brilliant resource to introduce completing the square which then finally moves on to look at applications of it in sketching graphs. The starting point of using ax^2 + bx to practice is an excellent idea and will really lead pupils in to completing the square well.
