# Visual Linear Algebra

Students are supported to solve linear algebra equations. The equation is provided both algebraically, and as a diagrammatic model. As students choose appropriate operation to carry out on both sides of the equation, the model is updated to show their progress towards a solution.

### Teacher notes

• Students are provided with an equation to solve, and can choose either to solve it or see another random equation.
• The equation is modelled diagramatically.
• Students are supported to choose an operation to carry out on both sides of the equation.
• Students are asked to identify the result of that operation.
• As the equation is updated, the diagram is modified to match.
