#### GCSESimultaneous Equations graphically - worksheet

GCSE Solving simultaneous equations using a graphical method. This worksheet only has straight line graphs. No curves. I haven’t put numbers on the axes (way too fiddly in word when I’m on a time limit) but they are intended to go up in ones. As always, if you use it - please review it. Eek! Q6 has a slight mistake. It should be -x+y

#### Maths: Percentages without a calculator worksheets

Need to spice up this rather dry topic.
For this dot to dot have students join question number to answer, e.g. Q1 find 10% of 80 so join 1 to 8. You must say to them to then do Q8 rather than 2 for two reasons:
1. it's quicker as you know where dot 8 is and don&'t need to waste time searching for dot 2.
2. The questions gradually get harder around the shape.
