In this unit, students focus on equations. They start by solving linear equations with variables on one or both sides, including equations with brackets and setting up their own equations, before looking at changing the subject of formulae, including formulae where the variable appears more than once. After this, students will look at algebraic proof before solving harder equations through trial & improvement and iteration.
