You need to be a member to download this file.

Take the confusion out of algebra with this fun outdoor activity where the students will simplify and solve differentiated algebraic problems. They will be given a task card containing an equation which will consist of sticks, leaves and numbers.

They must first simplify the equation by creating it on the playground using stick, leaves and chalk before writing a possible solution to the algebraic equation underneath. It's a great lesson to introduce students to solving equations and representing numbers through letters / objects.

This pack contains 24 differentiated task cards (1 - 10 are simple equations and 11 - 20 are more complex).
