Works through introducing algebra to simplifying basic expressions using paperclips and physical objects (which need to be referenced as each having a value, so mathematically correct). Recommend adapting slides to use objects that pupils are interested in, and use names of pupils within the class to engage them. 10th Mar - updated to include substitution earlier on to combat misconceptions
