The former represents the aggregation of two groups, and the latter a partitioning of a whole number. The concept of the balance helps to discourage the use of meaningless rules for algebraic manipulation, such as Change sides, change sign. As always, it is the meaning that underlies the symbols that must be the focus of attention, not a set of rules for their manipulation. 54 9620 CHAP 7 53-61 17/8/05 1:51 pm Page 55 7 ■ ALGEBRA c) Writing Expressions Just as numbers may be understood holistically, as patterns of dots on a Slavonic abacus, so algebraic expressions may be given a graphical meaning that will help pupils who think more easily in pictures than in words and symbols to understand and work with them effectively.
