Abstract: How primary pupils think about the equals sign is very important for their arithmetic competence, and for their later learning of algebra at secondary school. Research suggests that children think about the equals sign in three different ways. In this article we explain these three different ways of seeing the equals sign, and describe a web-based teaching intervention that can promote a more sophisticated understanding.
