This lesson is intended as an introduction to simultaneous equations, where students solve picture-based puzzles without using formal algebra.
The idea is that the following lesson they can look at equations given algebraically and see how it is effectively the same thing.

This PowerPoint shows the graphical methods for solving simultaneous equations using the cover-up method.
This is a worksheet with some questions on solving simultaneous equation in three sections.
Section one is two linear equations, section two is a quadratic and y=n, and section three is the extension which is a quadratic and y=mx+c.
There is a RAG table for students to mark their progress and this can be amended depending on how far you want to go. Students will need to plot graphs and estimate solutions as not all are integers.

This is a three-part lesson with grade B questions.
The starter includes questions to recap and consolidate previous learning in accordance with the route map (scheme of work) I have uploaded.

This lesson uses area to introduce simultaneous equations. Students move from informal to formal solutions effortlessly.
This was inspired by the NCETM departmental workshops, and two of their documents are included in the download with worksheets and lesson plan.
This is a set of six sheets of increasingly difficult simultaneous equations designed to make students think and discuss how to work through their solutions by giving them different parts of the process.
They include simultaneous equations that involve a linear and a non-linear equation.
This is also designed to stretch at GCSE or could be used at the start of A level.
This KS3 or GCSE PowerPoint activity has a couple of simple slides showing what we mean by solving simultaneous equations, and how to solve them graphically.
There are some questions and answers at the end. It assumes students can plot y=mx + c style equations.
Author: David Morse
Ideal for students who are revising simultaneous equations, these revision sheets have exam-type questions which gradually increase in difficulty.
The last questions have an extra twist.
This lesson will show students how plotting two linear equations in x and y allows them to solve simultaneous equations.
The PowerPoint has a full explanation as the starter and there is a sheet of questions for students to practice.
Before doing this task they should have covered algebraic versions of simultaneous equations, as well as linear graph plotting.
Trying to find a real-life example of where we might solve simultaneous equations graphically I came up with this. Students have to plot to linear graphs and find the point of impact.
You could bring in Pythagoras and find out if the two bodies were travelling at the same speed would they actually collide, but I wanted to keep the worksheet to one side of A4.

Solve pairs of linear simultaneous equations to put Tarsia puzzle together – good for group work.
This is a walk-through of how to solve simultaneous equations where one is linear and the other is quadratic. There is also a starter activity that gets students to practise factorising.
Author: Claire Mooney
This worksheet features GCSE questions for simultaneous equations, and comes with an answer sheet.
Find the equation of the line and the circle, then calculate the points where the streaker crosses the boundary.
This is a three-part lesson on solving quadratic simultaneous equations at grade A* level. The starter recaps solving grade B simultaneous equations. There is a mini-plenary and exam question plenary embedded. And answers are provided throughout.
This lesson shows students how plotting two linear equations in x and y allows them to solve simultaneous equations.
The objective of these KS4 maths algebra worksheets is to be able to solve simultaneous equations. It’s a simple simultaneous equations worksheet, with starter, main and extension.
The starter has negative number questions and solving simple linear equations. The difficulty is staggered in the main bit. The extension is a worded simultaneous equation.
This resource has three sections with differing levels of difficulty on solving simultaneous equations by elimination. It’s nothing fancy, just a load of questions (and answers).
This carefully selected compilation of exam questions has fully-worked solutions designed for students to go through at home, saving valuable time in class.
This carefully selected compilation of exam questions also has fully-worked solutions designed for students to go through at home. Only this one is for quadratic equations.

This PowerPoint for simultaneous equations is specifically for the elimination method, but also briefly covers the substitution method.
Clumsy Clive is tackling simultaneous equations homework but as per usual is making errors. There are three sets of linear simultaneous equations for students to correct and a linear/quadratic to look at.
This worksheet features 12 simultaneous equation questions for students to solve graphically. Answers are included.
This is a three-part lesson on solving simultaneous equations where the coefficients of one variable is the same.
The starter recaps work on solving equations. The main and extension are grade B questions. There is a mini-plenary and plenary embedded, and answers are provided throughout.

This full lesson introduces solving simultaneous equations using graphical methods.
The starter is a kinaesthetic activity where pupils order themselves according to the value of the expressions they are holding (answers and values to substitute are shown on the board).
For the main activity they pick out graphs to find pairs of solutions to (at first by trial and error) – which later they draw and solve graphically.
Everything you need for every subject across Key Stages 3 and 4.
