Trial and Improvement is a method of solving equations when you can’t do it by normal algebraic methods. In simple terms, it is a substituting value method. It aims to get more accurate results by replacing values into equalities until we find a value that is the same for both equations.

The grade 11 Mathematical Literacy students have been learning about the method this week and are steadily grasping it. The method is quite useful when trying to find the intersection point of two linear functions or during break-even analysis.

Here are few photos of them practicing their newly acquired skill.
