Expanding, Factorising and Solving Quadratics

Expanding, Factorising and Solving Quadratics

This is designed to take the students from simple expanding a bracket to simple factorising to multiplying out two brackets to factorising quadratics to simplifying algebraic fractions to solving quadratics by completing the square to solving quadratics using the quadratic formula and simultaneous equations involving quadratics. There are questions for each as well as examples and explanations. Between each section there is a 'Where are you now?' section to show progress.

Christmas Codebreakers

Christmas Codebreakers

Three codebreakers ranging from easy to difficult as you go through them, but all with a Christmas joke (made up by me, so I apologise now) and with all the questions being Christmas-y too. All sorts of topics covered. Hopefully errors corrected (I found one on each sheet!).

Number Codebreakers August 2017 Bundle

Number Codebreakers August 2017 Bundle

The usual story - these cover various topics under the "Number" umbrella. Students answer the questions to reveal the punchline to a joke. Ideal for starters and plenaries in my opinion, but use them as you wish.

Erica's Errors - AS/A Level Maths (Year 1) Bundle

Erica's Errors - AS/A Level Maths (Year 1) Bundle

Erica makes mistakes; lots of mistakes. You have her homework on every topic covered in the first year of her A level mathematics course where she consistently makes mistakes. Your job, or more accurately, the students in your classes' job is to correct Erica's errors and explain where she's gone wrong so that she doesn't make the same mistakes again. These have gone down well in my classes and really encourage discussion about the mathematics and should embed a deeper understanding.
