Description:

This problem provides an opportunity to introduce a visual way of representing operations on unknown numbers to help lead students to using a symbolic representation. Learners are asked to think of a number and then through an interactivity are given a sequence of operational instructions to follow which leads all students to the same final number. The Teachers' Notes page offers suggestions for implementation, key discussion questions, ideas for extension and support.
