# Quadratic and Linear Simultaneous Equations

To solve a quadratic and linear equation simultaneously students first review the elimination method for two linear equations.

The development phase goes on to demonstrate solving the equations as means to calculating the intersecting point between their respective graphs.  There are examples provided for the teacher to demonstrate and additional problems for the students.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to solve a pair of simultaneous equations where one is quadratic and the other is linear through the method of substitution.
• Most students should be able to find intersecting points from a quadratic and linear graph using the method of substitution to solve equations simultaneously.
• Some students should be able to find the intersecting point between a reciprocal and linear equation.

#### Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
