The Importance Learning to Solve Simultaneous Equations
The mathematics curriculum traditionally has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop skills and acquire knowledge that would be important in adulthood and to prepare sutdents to enter careers that would not require a high level of mathematical ability.
Today the context of mathematics instruction needs to be much broader. The accelerated pace at which modern society produces technological change requires that high school graduates be prepared for careers in qhich mathematics will be very important. In order to be successful in many careers students will need to be confident in their mathematical abilities. They will need to be able to solve problems, to communicate mathematical ideas and to think logically.
Simultaneous Equations turns your iPad into a power tool for teaching the concepts related to solving simultaneous equations using the graphical, substitution and elimination methods. Use Simultaneous Equations to create a presentation while illustrating and discussing the key principles of analytic geometry. Simultaneous Equation is perfect for algebra students in middle school and high school classrooms. Enrich your mathematics curriculum with the power of Simultaneous Equations!
Simultaneous equations are a system of equations where a solution can be found for two variables so that when the values are substituting into the equations, both equations are true. Finding the solution involves working with two equations simultaneously. The graph of any equations shows all the values for which the equation is true. In solving simultaneous equations, the goal is the find the values for the variables where both equations are true. Simultaneous equations are used to solve many everyday problems. Here is a list of some applications where being able to solve simultaneous equations is helpful:
- Rate, Distance and Time problems
- Finding the Best Rate Plan
- Choosing the Best Loan
- Mixing Chemical Compounds
- and many other problems...
The Simultaneous Equations app creates a basic set of learning experiences to help students better understand of methods for solving simultaneous equations. Coordinate geometry bridges algebra and geometry.
Learning the Substitution and Elimination Methods for Solving Simultaneous Equations is fundamental to success in higher mathematics. Main topics:
- Equations in Slope Intercept Form
- Parallel Lines
- Slope and y-intercept
- Substitution Method
- Elimination Method
