Algebra Through Geometry


A square is X. A quadrant with a radius the same length as a side of the square is Y. Now geometry connects to algebra. The concept of a pronumeral, adding and subtracting like terms, the distributive law and linear factorisation all follow, mostly by asking the mathematicians question: "Can I check this another way?". You will be using materials based on the work of Geoff Giles and, with a partner, will dig deeper and deeper into spatial challenges that can be expressed in algebraic terms. You will also be supplied with a master to make copies for your own classes.
