Algebra In Action

This Teachers TV video is suitable for use as a Key Stage Two mathematics lesson starter on algebra. It uses a story of a cold apple seller who cannot afford to buy a scarf.

The story finishes by asking students to work out the formula for how many apples will be needed to buy a coat.
