This is a whole lesson on expanding a single bracket. Including starter, plenary, key words, plenty of examples and questions with answers. The PowerPoint contains 18 slides and for some classes is enough for two lessons. It also includes expanding two single brackets and simplifying and addresses some of the misunderstanding around algebra, especially the difference between adding and multiplying.
This is normally the first lesson I would teach on expanding/factorizing.
1. Expanding 1 Parenthesis
2. Expanding 2 Parenthesis
3. Factorising 1 Parenthesis
4. Factorising 2 Parenthesis
