This is level 1; Simple equations where the solution can be found by dividing both sides of the equation by an integer. You can earn a trophy if you get at least 7 questions correct.

 $$7m = 14$$ Working: $$m$$ = $$5n = 10$$ Working: $$n$$ = $$3y = 15$$ Working: $$y$$ = $$3b = 30$$ Working: $$b$$ = $$9x = 54$$ Working: $$x$$ = $$4i = 32$$ Working: $$i$$ = $$12 = 3e$$ Working: $$e$$ = $$8q = 64000$$ Working: $$q$$ = $$10 = 5b$$ Working: $$b$$ = $$16i = 168$$ Working: $$i$$ =

"My year five children look forward to their daily challenge and enjoy the problems as much as I do. A great resource - thanks a million."

Comment recorded on the 25 June 'Starter of the Day' page by Inger.kisby@herts and essex.herts.sch.uk, :

"We all love your starters. It is so good to have such a collection. We use them for all age groups and abilities. Have particularly enjoyed KIM's game, as we have not used that for Mathematics before. Keep up the good work and thank you very much
Best wishes from Inger Kisby"

#### Tran Tunnels

Answer the questions as you find your way through the tunnels. Collect coins on the way. There's a musical theme to this adventure game and you won't be able to complete it unless you solve all of the clues.

There are answers to this exercise but they are only available to teachers who have subscribed to Transum and are currently signed in on this computer.

A Transum subscription unlocks the answers to most of the student online exercises, quizzes and puzzles. It also provides the teacher with access to quality external links on each of the Transum topic pages so that teachers can easily find the excellent resources we have found and add to the collection themselves.

Class lists, lesson plans and assessment data can also be stored in the Class Admin application and the teacher also has access to the Transum Trophies earned by class members.

## Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those.

## Description of Levels

Close

Example: 8n = 64

### Level 2 - Simple equations where the solution can be found in two steps.

Example: 9e + 6 = 78

### Level 3 - Equations where a multiple of the unknown and a constant are on both sides.

Example: 4y - 7 = 3y - 4

### Level 4 - Equations including brackets.

Example: 2(4r + 7) - 9 = 21

### Level 5 - More complex equations requiring multiple steps to find the solution.

Example: 6(10h + 3) + 4 = 7h + 287

## Example

Here is an example showing a good way to solve an equation of this type (Level 1) by thinking of the two sides of the equation as two sides of a balance. The equation will remain balanced only if you do the same thing (multiply, divide add or subtract) to both sides.

3x = 12
Divide both sides by 3
x = 4

By doing the same thing to both sides of the equation you can find what one x is equal to.
