Lesson very good both technically and educationally

Mateo( interesting nickname!),
Your mathemagical lesson was fantastic. Uncluttered, visually appealing and engaging. I liked the discovery approach and the point that algebraic equations can be used to create a magic trick. Making math fun is always a good thing!
The use of pulling the words over to the algebraic conversion side of the page was a perfect application of the Mimiotools. The kids could easily view how the words converted to algebra which is a difficult concept but so crucial to solving word problems.
