Activities to help students to tackle algebra with confidence
Algebra needs to be taught well if all students are to gain the solid foundation they need to work confidently with this fundamental curriculum strand and to progress with the mathematics curriculum more broadly. Based on a wealth of insight and teaching experience, the Algebra for Everyone series has been created to provide the informed, practical support both teachers and students need to get algebra learning off to a strong start. Book 1 (age suitability: 11-14), establishing the foundations of learning, is a resource that can be used to introduce and review basic algebra before moving on to the more advanced algebra covered in Book 2 (age suitability: 13-16).
