Simplifying algebraic fractions works in the same way as simplifying normal fractions; a common factor must be found and divided throughout. By the end of this lesson students will feel more confident simplifying fractions: where terms are being multiplied, by factorising the numerator/denominator, and where quadratic equations are involved. This class is aimed at students in Years 9 - 11 and is great for students who are preparing for the GCSE Maths Higher paper.
