Teacher guide reSolve: Algebra: Chess - The King

TLF ID M021832

This lesson aims to build students' algebraic reasoning and understanding of number as they explore computation on the number chart. Students explore the moves of a king chess piece and how the value of the numbers change as he moves. This builds into an algebraic exploration of equivalent values that can be found on the number chart. The lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, discussion points and student handouts. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
