    These are exaclty the type of questions I would write, sometimes even on the spot during the lesson depending on how the students are getting on. The use of algebra really helps you figure out if they understand the methods. I always worry that I don’t give my students enough repetitive practice on the same type of question so it is great to read this and feel like I am doing something right.

    An interesting read. Thank you.

    Excellent resource and excellent ideas about collaboration.
    I would also mention about cancelling down before you do the multiplication.
    In terms of collaboration I might suggest that the lessons are planned across the whole year group and then different levels of questions are asked for each set.

    I found this post inspiring and did the same for my next lesson on expanding quadratics. It worked a treat – really engaged students who were thinking about the links between questions.
