Binomial expansion and simultaneous equations for AQA Level 2 Further Mathematics



This session will focus on the knowledge of the binomial expansion and three-variable simultaneous equations required for the AQA Level 2 Further Maths course and in particular the following aspects

  • How to introduce the Binomial expansion
  • What might be asked? And how might it be asked? 
  • Simultaneous equations - going from 2d to 3d
  • Generating examples


  • To familiarise teachers with some key topics on the AQA Level 2 Further Maths course that involve the topics above
  • To consider how these topics, which are relatively new to this specification, might be explored, examined and extended
  • To collaborate on a range of questions, from basic to challenging, to ensure teachers are comfortable to explore these topics with their students.

Who will benefit from attending?

  • Did you teach the previous specification and want to update yourself on the changes in the new specification?
  • Are you planning to start delivering the course soon?

This session is aimed both at teachers who are new to the course and those who would like support with the pedagogy of the topics which are extra to GCSE Maths. 

Materials and Equipment

The session will be held on the Zoom platform. The link to register for the session will be sent to applicants a few days before the session.

You are advised to use a headset or headphones with a microphone to provide the best sound quality and to prevent audio issues for other users. A laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone may be sufficient if you’re in a quiet area but please take the time to check this before the session.

In order to fully participate in the meeting please be willing to use your camera and microphone, although if this is impossible the chat option will be available.

Other Information

This course is part of a series of topic specific sessions designed for teachers (and prospective teachers) of AQA Level 2 Further Maths to support both subject knowledge and pedagogy.
