Students learnÂ how to solve cubic and reciprocal equations using graphical methods.

As learning progresses, they begin to identify the number of solutions possible from a pair of simultaneous equations.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to solve cubic equations graphically
- Most students should be able to solve cubic and reciprocal equations graphically
- Some students should be able to derive an equation that can be solved graphically by a cubic or reciprocal function
