Iteration - solving equations (new GCSE)

It used to be quite easy to come up with examples to teach/practise trial and improvement, but using iteration is a very different beast and needs some carefully chosen and prepared questions. This worksheet contains a brief introduction/reminder about iterative formulae and their use in sequences, then has one example of using iteration to find a root of an equation, to work through as a class. The following exercise has 7 questions for students to attempt on their own. Answers are included.
