Teaching with Algebra Tiles: Axioms, Expressions and Equality

In this course we will take a journey through directed number arithmetic to culminate in working algebraically. We will take an axiomatically coherent approach using algebra tiles as our model of communication. In doing so, we offer pupils the opportunity to gain conceptual appreciation and see connections between ideas that are the fundamental building blocks in mathematics.
