Introduction to linear equations

A PowerPoint which introduces solving linear equations. It is a very basic “how many counters are in the cup”. Clicking on the cups reveals the number of counters. The main positive of this are the discussions around what is happening. For example, each cup has the same number of counters, why are you subtracting, have you done it to both sides. The discussions in the methods then gives a common language to introduce solving more formally. Feedback welcome.
