Systems of simultaneous equations are intriguing.
They are used to identify points that the equations have in common (in this case, an x and a y value). Interestingly, there are a number of ways to solve equations simultaneously. The two primary methods that are first learned in middle high school are substitution and elimination. In time, mathematics students also learn about the use of determinants and matrices as well (not to mention vectors, etc.).
My plan (at this stage) is to address these four key methods/topics on this website.
Graeme’s approach to explaining maths formulas made it easy for my children to grasp. Graeme had a number of methods by which he could explain each problem, giving the students a clear understanding of how to approach each area of maths. My students came away feeling confident of when, and how to apply each formula to solve the maths problems.
