Our resources apply the principles of Mastery throughout, creating a rich and deep learning experience. Find out more about Mastery with our quick guide.
This final unit of the series develops the algebraic strand to learning by considering a wide range of more complex equations and solving them. Solving linear equations is recapped, followed by solving quadratic equations by factorising. Simultaneous equations are derived from questions in context and solved algebraically both by substitution and elimination. A wide range of types of problems are presented and reasoning skills are developed through the setting up and solving of these problems; including solving a range of types of equations. At the end of the unit, degrees of accuracy are explored along with the impact of accuracy levels on calculations.

What people say...
The stretch and challenge provided for was outstanding.

The worksheets are well written and the students seemed comfortable with the format. Some interesting questions too, which fit well with the new GCSE course.
