### Adding with negative numbers

A number line is used in this resource, from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, to illustrate how to solve a calculation involving negative numbers. To help correct misconceptions regarding these, the term *taking away* is used to represent minus and *giving back* for plus. Thus -8 +6...

### Algebra

Designed to improve confidence in mathematics, these resources from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching, focus on algebra and were developed particularly for primary teachers and those non-specialists who teach mathematics in the lower secondary years.

Each section offers an overview of a...
