Simultaneous equations are when there are two or more unknown equations. These equations can be solved algebraically or graphically. In today's lesson, students will learn to solve these equations using graphs and will use their prior knowledge of straight line graphs to draw the graphs. Students will be guided through how to rearrange the equations so that they can draw graphs to solve for the equations as well. This class is suitable for Years 7 - 11 and would make a great revision tool!
