N1/E3.10

Understand simple algebra problems
(a) Solve two-step word problems

Addition and subtraction task I use in induction sessions with Entry level construction students.
Students need to use the code to work out the ‘value’ of each word. They can then use the answers for the second page.
Normally I give out the first page and use the second as an extension task.
