              Writing Expressions using Keywords

              Students learn about writing expressions using keywords.  More able students are challenged to write expressions with brackets using more than one unknown.  Less able students write simple addition and multiplication expressions with a single unknown.At the start of the lesson students matching keywords such as total, sum, product and so on.  In the main phase they are taught how to use the correct notation to form a simplified expression.  At the end of the lesson they match various descriptions with their algebraic expressions.
