Starting Algebra / Shape and Space

This introductory book in the Algebra / Shape and Space series from Spectrum Maths was primarily for those students working at National Curriculum levels one to three. It contains forty activities. Each activity is presented as a possible starting point for a lesson or series of lessons. Twenty focus on algebra and twenty focus on shape and space, though some activities relate to both of these aspects, as well as other areas of the mathematics curriculum. The algebra activities are non sequential focussing mainly on number patterns derived from additition and subtraction. Classifying, recognising 2-D and 3-D shapes, direction and compass points form the content of the shape and space activities.
