Solving Equations Practice
Solve randomly generated equations, for example: 2x = -6, 5(x + 2) = 15, 4x - 1 = -x + 9.
Working should be done on paper and answer inputed for correction.

Gradient Calculation (Shockwave)
Determine the gradient from two user-defined points.

y = mx + c 1 
(Java Applet)
Watch the line change in real time as you alter m or c.
y = mx + c 2 
Experiment with the m and c and see how the gradient of a line is calculated.
y = mx + c 3 
(Java Applet)
Anothere page experimenting with the m and c to see how the gradient of a line is calculated.

Simultaneous Equations 
(Java Applet)
Graphs two linear equations showing the solution as the point where the lines intersect.

Quadratic Equation Proof (Flash)
Arrange the lines of the proof into the correct order.

Zap It! Game 
Try to adjust the quadratic function, y=ax˛+bx+c, to 'Zap' as many data points as possible.
