Expanding Brackets

Three lessons feature in this topic:

  • Expanding single brackets has two tasks which each follow clear examples - the first looks at just expanding single brackets, the second looks at expanding and simplifying.

  • Expanding quadratics is also split into two parts - the first has a coefficient of x of 1, the second has a coefficient greater than 1. Also looks at sketching quadratics using their intercepts with the axes.

  • Expanding cubics uses the grid method and extends students to sketch cubic graphs with their intercepts with the axes.

All three lessons are fully differentiated and include answers.
