The lesson aims to challenge students through exploring their understanding of linear equations and intersecting lines. Students work collaboratively, following guided questions to explore the relationships between two linear equations. The lesson is aimed to challenge students' thinking, encouraging them to explore and deepen their conceptual understanding. The resource includes classroom examples, teacher notes and guided questions.
