After reading an article by Ruth James in the Journal of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, Jess Smith was inspired to introduce a new idea to her Year 8 Mathematics lessons.

Jess’s idea was to take this a step further and adapt it to algebra. Read more about Jess’s work in her report below.
