In your reflective partners...
...
What grade is each question?

Which questions do you think you can


answer?
Solve Factorise
2x + 1 = 7 15pq + 10q

Solve Factorise
2 (x + 4) = 8 x2 + 6x + 5

Factorise Complete the square and solve


2x2 – 3x - 2 x2 + 4x + 9 =0

Solve Simplify
2x2 – 3x – 2 = 0 2x + 2
4x + 4

Simplify Solve
x2 + 6x + 5 x2 + 6x + 5 = 3
x2 + 7x + 10 x2 + 7x + 10
10 quick questions...
What is an algebraic fraction?
It is a fraction that contains algebra!!!

Eg. 1 6x + 3
( x + 2) 12 + 3x

One of these fractions is not in its


simplest form...
2 + 3
(x + 1) (x + 2)
Try it for yourself...
