A maths expert demonstrates an engaging lesson idea for teaching Key Stage 2 pupils about algebra, and discusses techniques for teaching algebra, in this CPD resource.

Isaac Anoom, a maths consultant and qualified teacher for KS1, KS2 and KS33, demonstrates his lesson with a Year 6 class, focusing on creating a formula for how many people can shake hands in an allotted time.

After observing his lesson, Isaac, the class's teacher and a local authority maths advisor discuss the difficulties teachers face when teaching algebra.

The lesson was filmed at Mount Pleasant Nursery and JMI School near St Albans and is part of the KS2 maths Lesson Planning Pack on fractions, decimals and percentages, which includes two lesson starters, one great lesson idea and a CPD discussion.
