20 mins


Host: Tas is a Qualified Secondary Teacher specialising in Maths with a background of Accounting and Finance. She has worked in several Schools over a period of 5 years- including as a numeracy co-ordinator, working with pupils aged 11-16 with gifted and talented, SEN and EAL pupils. Tas has also worked as a private Tutor with GCSE and KS3 pupils helping them to increase their grades as much as 3 steps over a space of 2 years.

This session looks at what is factorising and how it can be used algebraically.

Safeguarding reminder:  We know that the safety of your child is of the utmost important. This is why we use Zoom's Webinar feature to provide our live classes, where by default, your child's webcam and microphone are disabled. 

Key takeaways:

  • Factorising is to put an expression back into brackets by taking out a common factor.
  • Full factorisation must be done or question is incomplete.
  • Expressions with powers can be factorised by taking out the common index.

Suitable for:  Pupils who have worked on solving equations and want to move on. Also for pupils who have factorised in the past but want to refresh their memory.
