Covers 6 different methods of factorising quadratics and other types of expressions (e.g. cubics), the last two of which are extension:
(a) Factorising out a single term (b) Factorising expressions of the form x^2 + bx + c, (c) Difference of two squares (d) Expressions of the form ax^2 + bx + c (where a is not 1) ,
(e) 'Intelligent guessing' (e.g. bx - x + ab - a = (x + a)(b - 1)) and (f) Pairwise factorisation.
Includes expressions which require multiple types of factorisation.
