A Key Stage 2 maths lesson starter on algebra, using a story of a cold apple seller who can't afford a scarf.

The apple seller manages to exchange some apples for a scarf. The scarf seller then goes and exchanges some of her scarves for a coat.

The story finishes by asking pupils to work out the formula for how many apples will be needed to get a coat.
