Year 6 Maths - Algebra in Action

Class: Mr Carruthers - Derwentwater Year: 2020 - 2021

After a week getting our heads around the new topic of Algebra, we decided to use the front yard as a canvas for some equations and bar models.

It ended up looking like Einstein's chalkboard!

Everyone has been telling Mr Carruthers that Algebra is easy, apparently!! 

Can you work out the value of y and draw a bar model, if ......   5y + 12 = 32 ?
