Solving Equations Through Iteration

              Solving Equations Through Iteration

              Students learn how to use numerical methods to solve equations through iteration.  As learning progresses they are challenged to find alternative solutions through different rearrangements.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the root of a quadratic equation using iteration.
              • Most students should be able to solve a non-linear equation using iteration.
              • Some students should be able to identify the limits of x when solving equations using iteration.
