This is a set of worksheets and resources about quadratic equations which will be suitable for pupils who are either currently doing National 5 maths, or who are about to begin Higher maths and want to revise the topic of quadratic equations.
These resources will not be suitable for pupils who have never come across quadratic equations before, but will be suitable for those who have, even if they don’t remember everything about them. It will also be of use as a resource for other teachers to use with learners.
