A solid understanding of quadratics is key to achieving the best results in Maths exams or teacher assessments.

In this class, students will look at the difference between factorising into a single bracket and a double bracket and will cover the characteristics of a quadratic expression.  Students will also look at quadratics where one of the numbers is a square number.

This is a great class either to revise the topic or to get ahead and understand the topic before it is covered in alternative education.
