Iteration at a glance


The iterative process is a method used to find an approximate solution to an equation. The iterative process is most often used for an equation that is not easily solved using other methods such as factorising. 


Iteration involves substituting a value into an iteration formula. The output from the formula is then fed back into the formula. This is repeated a certain number of times or until we have found a solution to a particular degree of accuracy, for example a given number of decimal places or significant figures. Each output will be closer than the last to the solution of the equation – the outputs will converge to the solution to the equation. 


When using the iterative process, we might be given the iteration formula or we might need to rearrange a given formula into the correct form.


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional solving equations worksheets and other algebra worksheets, for example a sequences worksheet, simultaneous equations worksheet or straight line graphs worksheet.
