# Simultaneous Simultaneous Equations

The emphasis of Simultaneous Simultaneous Equations should be on pupils completing the equations - do not over emphasise getting them all correct!

Focus on the meaning of a simultaneous equation - do they understand what it really means? (One definition defines it as 'equations involving two or more unknowns that are to have the same values in each equation'). Emphasise that everyone is going to be doing the same thing at the same time!

How many pupils can you get to do Simultaneous Equations Simultaneously in your school...?! Fill out the form below to register your school and then download the appropriate packs for your school.

**We have created packs, at varying levels of difficulty, for your pupils. These are:**

Group 1 (€) or Group 1 (£): Most suited to First Year level |

Group 2 (€) or Group 2 (£): Most suited to Junior Cert level |

Group 3 (€) or Group 3 (£): Most suited to Leaving Cert level |

Or if any of the above do not suit why not create your own simultaneous equations?

Thanks to Lorna Wilson, a secondary maths teacher, for creating this superb idea for Maths Week!
