# algebra 1st time

Teaching two topics per lesson for the first 2 lessons is recommended partly because

• simplify +/- and write in algebra (episodes 1 and 2) go together well, and they are both short
• inequality and simplify x/÷ (episodes 3 and 4) go together well, and they are both short

... also because it is easy to miss out the second topic for the super-low attaining learners.

## Episode 1: simplify +/-

 level lesson topic(s) description teach-learn Q practise-learn resource easy hard a simplify +/- simplify e.g. 3a + 5a simplifySDTL1.pdf simplifySD1.pdf y st b simplify +/- simplify e.g. 5a - 3a or 2x - 6x etc simplifySDTL2.pdf simplifySD2.pdf h y c simplify +/- simplify e.g. a + a + a + a + a simplifySDTL3.pdf simplifySD3.pdf h

## Episode 2: write in algebra

 level lesson topic(s) description teach-learn Q practise-learn resource easy hard a write in algebra scaffolded word to algebra e.g. a + b + c write algebra write algebra h y b write in algebra word to algebra expression e.g. a + b writeAlgebra2.pdf h

## Episode 3: inequality

 level lesson topic(s) description teach-learn Q practise-learn resource easy hard a inequality list values from diagram e.g. -3 ≤ k ≤ 5 inequalityTL1.pdf inequality1.pdf y y b inequality list values from diagram e.g. -3 ≤ k < 5 inequalityTL2.pdf inequality2.pdf h

## Episode 4: simplify x/÷

 level lesson topic(s) description teach-learn Q practise-learn resource easy hard a simplify x/÷ simplify e.g. 3 x h (always in correct order) simplifyPQTL1.pdf simplifyPQ1.pdf y y b simplify x/÷ simplify e.g. h x 3 or h x h (scaffolded) simplifyPQTL2.pdf simplifyPQ2.pdf y c simplify x/÷ simplify e.g. h x h x h x h x h ** simplifyPQTL4.pdf simplifyPQ4.pdf h

** FYI  this didn't embed well learners muddled simplifySD3.pdf with simplifyPQ4.pdf suggest sticking to layers 1 and 2

## Episode 5: value of: algebra

 level lesson topic(s) description teach-learn Q practise-learn resource easy hard a value of work out value of e.g. 3p given p = 10, diagram & example value algebra value algebra h y b value of work out value of e.g. 3p given p = 20, diagram (no example a little harder multiply) value algebra value algebra y

## Episode 6: solve

FAKE timely practice FAST easier A6fast.pdf, harder AsixFast.pdf

 level topic description teach-learn Q practise-learn resource easy hard a solve e.g. box + 7 = 10 10bond3.pdf and 10bond4.pdf y st b solve given input & 1 stage numberMachineTL6.pdf numberMachine6.pdf h c solve given input & 2 stage numberMachineTL8.pdf numberMachine8.pdf h st d solve 2 stage in reverse numberMachineTL10.pdf numberMachine10.pdf y e solve e.g. a + 12 = 21 solveTL1.pdf solve1.pdf y f solve e.g. 4a = 48 or c/3 = 9 solveTL2.pdf solve2.pdf h

** FYI the 10 bond layers have been updated to include showing the boxes method - however the retrieval practice questions don't show the boxes method - teacher may have to draw on the boxes for a few lessons until the learner gets it

## Episode 7: sequence arithmetic

## Episode 8: algebra graph

 level topic description teach-learn Q practise-learn resource easy hard a algebra graph given plotted points draw the line and try to fill in last coordinate in the table (very supported) algebraGraphTL2.pdf algebraGraph2.pdf y st b algebra graph plot several points (supported, to ignore the hard to plot points) easy scale algebraGraphTL3.pdf algebraGraph3.pdf h y c algebra graph continue pattern, in table of values, draw y = c, x = c, y = x and  x + y = c algebraGraphTL4.pdf algebraGraph4.pdf h

## Teach time + review algebra

FAKE timely practice FAST easier reviewAlgebra1.pdf, harder revALGone.pdf

## Teach time + algebra test 1

This should be the penultimate lesson - if necessary set this test in the last lesson

## Teach time + algebra test 2 and 2nd G+M test

This should be the last lesson - if necessary join this with the lesson above.
