              Writing Expressions using Diagrams

              Students learn about writing expressions using diagrams.  As learning progresses they create their own shapes from an expression.At the start of the lesson they recap how to write expressions using keywords.  In the main part students are taught how to write expressions from diagrams with areas given as letters.  At the end of the lesson they area challenged to create their own shapes given a fixed area.
