# Mostly Algebra Materials

DfE Standards Unit: Improving Learning in Mathematics activities to support the learning of algebra. The 'Active Learning' session plans include starting points, descriptions of the processes and photocopiable resources.

## Resources

### Interpreting Algebraic Expressions A1

In this resource from the DfES Standards Unit, students learn to translate between words, symbols, tables, and area representations of algebraic expressions, recognise the order of operations, recognise equivalent expressions and understand the distributive laws of multiplication and division over addition (...

### Creating and Solving Equations A2

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students learn to create and solve their own equations, where the unknown appears once. Most students will have been taught rules for solving equations such as ‘change the side, change the sign’ or ‘you always do the same to

both sides’. When used without...

### Creating and Solving Harder Equations A3

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students create and solve their own equations where the unknown appears more than once and learn that there may be more than one way of solving such equations. Before doing this activity students should be able to solve equations where the unknown appears only once....

### Evaluating Algebraic Expressions A4

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students learn to distinguish between and interpret equations, inequations and identities and substitute into algebraic statements in order to test their validity in special cases. Students often use letters in algebra without understanding what they mean. Common...
