This is a 20 question settler activity for KS3 or KS4. There are four different versions, each containing the same questions but arranged in a different order. Students factorise the 20 expressions, shading in their answers on the grid on the left-hand side.
When they have finished, there will be five unshaded answers to be transferred to the boxes at the bottom of the sheet. These expressions will form a pattern. The target is the missing expressions which is (x -2)(x + 3), so no marking is needed – if they have found the target.
