There are two PixiMaths lessons on factorising:

  • The first lesson looks at factorising into single brackets and has a differentiated main activity to follow clear examples.

  • Factorising quadratics is a two-part lesson with the first activity on factorising quadratics where the coefficient of x^2 is 1, followed by a coefficient greater than 1. Both lesson parts are fully differentiated with examples and answers. The lesson starts with a product and sum activity to get students thinking about possible pairs of numbers.
