Students learn how to set up and solve a pair of simultaneous equations.

Later, as learning progresses they use simultaneous equations to model real-life problems.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to solve a pair of simultaneous equations with different coefficients using the elimination method
- Most students should be able to derive and solve a pair of simultaneous equations by equating two unknowns.
- Some students should be able to equate two unknowns from a diagram and solve using the method of elimination.
