This worksheet contains lots of practice expanding single brackets where students can use whichever method they chose. Questions are divided between four sections of six questions each, all that differ slightly.
All multipliers in the expressions in section A are constants. In section B, all multipliers are variables.
Next, section C consists of multipliers such as 3x and then, expressions in section D contain two variables. Positive and negative terms appear throughout all sections, and there is variety in the order of terms within the brackets.
Finally, section E will extend students as they complete an algebraic multiplication grid.
