Thank you for your comment. As you know, all our resources, including the teaching packs, are written by teachers for teachers. We know that no two maths teachers will have the same view on how to teach key topics such as algebra, and we respect the approach our writer has used in his work on this pack. One advantage of the mix-and-match format is that it allows teachers to choose the sections that they feel will work best for their students and their teaching. That said, we would also love to see other ways of approaching this topic at its early stage and would be keen to see any ideas that you have.

Whilst there are some nice ideas in here the whole section on using fruit to collect like terms and the nonsense of strawberries divided by apples is NOT going to help students 'understand' algebra but instead lead to developing more misconceptions at a later date. I would suggest that those elements need a rethink before inexperienced teachers buy this and actually think that it is a good way to introduce those key concepts.

Not used the resources yet but they look great. I particularly like the group and independent learning tasks.
