There are currently 25 equations worksheets on this page for 9-1 GCSE grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, grade 6, grade 7, grade 8 and grade 9. Equations worksheet 1, equations worksheet 2 and equations worksheet 3 are forming and solving exercises for gcse foundation and gcse higher. Equations worksheet 4 is a I think of a number exercise. Equations worksheet 5 involves a 15 minute solving equations challenge. Equations worksheet 6 involves solving equations using area of rectangles. Equations worksheet 7 and Equations worksheet 8 are traditional equation worksheets. Equations worksheet 9 asks students to solve equations involving algebraic perimeters. Equations worksheet 10, Equations worksheet 11 and Equations worksheet 12 work at grade 2, grade 3 and grade 4 respectively. Equations worksheet 10, Equations worksheet 11 and Equations worksheet 12 involve solving equations with brackets as well as solving equations involving fractions. Equations worksheet 13, Equations worksheet 14, Equations worksheet 15, Equations worksheet 16 and Equations worksheet 17 involve solving quadratic equations including the difference of two squares and the quadratic formula. Equations worksheet 18, Equations worksheet 19, Equations worksheet 20 and Equations worksheet 23 asks students to solve simultaneous equations including use of the graphical method. Equations worksheet 21 and Equations worksheet 22 asks students to use trial and error in order to solve the equations given. Equations worksheet 24 works at grade 3 and it excludes all possibility of students working with negative numbers. Equations worksheet 25 focuses on the completing the square method and has been added later on as an addition to the other Equations worksheets.

Linear Equations Examples

Students learn how to solve equations from year 7 onwards. Solving equations ranges in difficulty. Students may understand how to manipulate algebraic expressions before they are ready to solve equations.

The resource below shows different examples of linear equations.

How to Solve Linear Equations

Equations is a GCSE Foundation and GCSE Higher topic. Experienced teachers will have their own unique approach when teaching how to solve equations. We recommend the balancing method as this is a common way to introduce the topic solving equations. As prerequisite topics we suggest: simplifying expressions, or substituting into expressions.
The resource below shows an example of the balancing method as well as the function machine method.
