Year 7 – Algebra 2 Techniques and methods SUPPORT From the Y5 and Y6 teaching programmes CORE From the Y7 teaching programme Use letter symbols to represent unkn numbers or variables; know the meani words term, expression and equation. Algebra 2 (5 hours) Equations, formulae and identities (112–119, 138–143) Understand and use the relationships between the four operations, and the principles (not the names) of the arithmetic laws. Use brackets. Understand that algebraic operations same conventions and order as arithm operations. Simplify linear algebraic expressions by like terms; begin to multiply a single term bracket (integer coefficients). Use simple formulae from mathematics subjects, substitute positive integers into linear expressions and formulae and, in cases, derive a formula. Solving problems (26–27) o Activities to develop behaviour include - Textbook references - Algebra cards - Taktiles - Algebra pyramids - back Identify the necessary information to solv problem; represent problems mathemati making correct use of symbols, words, d and tables.
