# Solving Simultaneous Equations Graphically

The start of the lesson involves recognising the properties of linear functions both algebraically and graphically by identifying the gradient and intercept values.The development phase builds on this by teaching how to solve a pair of equations simultaneously using graphical methods.  As learning progresses students are challenged to solve equations in the form ax + by + c = 0.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to plot a linear function using two points.
• Most students should be able to solve a pair of simultaneous equations with integer solutions graphically.
• Some students should be able to generate and solve a pair of simultaneous equations graphically.

#### 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 […]
