Simultaneous is defined as "occurring, operating, or done at the same time" so it's no surprise that for simultaneous equations you must solve more than one equation at a time. In this class, students will learn how to solve simultaneous equations by rearranging and substituting as well as subtracting equations from one another. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 - 11 and is a grade 5 and above topic, which can appear in both the higher and foundation GCSE paper.
