This Factorising Quadratic Expressions worksheet introduces students to expressions that are in the form of ax² + bx + c, where a, b, and c are constants.
In section A, pupils will start off factorising expressions where the coefficient of x squared is 1.
Then, in section B, all the coefficients of x squared are 2 and all terms are positive. Thus allowing pupils to consider the mechanics of their factorisations.
Section C progresses to include coefficients of x squared of 3 and 5. These numbers are intentionally all prime. Finally, in section D the coefficients of x squared are all composite numbers.
