This worksheet aims to build on students' knowledge of expanding single brackets in order to introduce factorisation.
Throughout the worksheet, pupils will complete multiplication grids where they are multiplying two term expressions by a single term (either a constant or a variable).
The grid is completed by writing the factored form and the expanded form. As the worksheet progresses students have to fill in different parts of the multiplication grid, leading them naturally to an understanding of factorisation.
Then in section F students will list the HCF of two terms and finally in section G students will factorise 24 expressions, all with two terms but including negative variables, number and variable factors and sometimes both.
