Formulate and manipulate expressions: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Formulate and manipulate expressions. Students extend the distributive law to expanding the product of two binomials (ax + b)(cx + d) and the factorisation of non-monic quadratic expressions with integer coefficients. Students practise algebraic manipulation involving quadratic and exponential expressions to develop fluency and confidence with their use, and to identify errors in algebra.
