This is a perfect resrouce for 3 lessons on solving simultaneous equations. It is aimed at foundation GCSE students (grade 5), although it would also be a good introduction to easier simultaneous equations for higher tier students.
It comprises the following:
Slides 2 and 3 - Two examples of solving basic simultaneous equations (e.g. 4x + y = 26, x + y = 8 AND 3x - y = 2, 2x + y = 13). These are animated to step through the process with students.
Slide 5 - Catchphrase activity (see image) with 16 questions of a similar style to slide 2 and 3. Students provide answers and reveal part of a picture. Answer: Falling of Deaf Ears
Slides 7 and 8 - Two examples of solving harder simultaneous equations (e.g. 4x + 2y = 22, x + y = 7 AND 3x - 2y = 13, 2x + y = 11). These are animated to step through the process with students.
Slide 10 - Catchphrase activity (see image) with 16 questions of a similar style to slide 7 and 8. Students provide answers and reveal part of a picture. Answer: Count on Us
Slide 13 - A further cathprhase activity with a mixture of different styles. Answer: Apple Pie.
All answers to the catchphrase activity are provided in the notes section of Powerpoint slides.
