Maths: Zoom input at 11:00am

We are beginning a 2 week focus on Algebra.

What is algebra? With computer games you play by running, jumping or finding secret things. Well, with Algebra you play with letters, numbers and symbols, and you also get to find secret things! Once you learn some of the "tricks", it becomes a fun challenge to work out how to use your skills in solving each "puzzle".

Today we will be looking at finding a rule - one step.

We will be looking at function machines. You input a number, complete the function, then you get the output.

For Example: for the function machine below. If the input is 1 you x4 then the output is 4.

Try these questions below:
