Approximate solutions to more complex equations can be found using a process called iteration. Iteration means repeatedly carrying out a process.

In this class we we learn how to solve an equation using iteration by starting with an initial value and substitute this into the iteration formula to obtain a new value. Students then use the new value for the next substitution, and so on. Iteration is a higher level topic for students aiming to achieve a grade 6 and above.
