Shahriyar HajghassemHost: Shahriyar is a Maths Teacher at a School in Northwest London, teaching years 7 to 11. He graduated from the University of Warwick in 2013 and set off to China for two years teaching IGCSE and A-Level Economics.

In this class students will learn how to factorise quadratic equations. They will use prior knowledge of factorising linear equations and build on this. Factorising quadratic equations will enable students to find the roots/solutions of a quadratic curve. The roots/solutions tell us the points at which the curve intersects the x-axis. This can be beneficial to businesses if they graph their price against their profits as shown in the image below. Using the curve, a business will be able to find it’s profit maximising price as well as the prices where they will make no profits.  

Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
