### Twizzle Arithmetic

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

Arrow arithmetic, but with a twist.

### Arrow Arithmetic 1

##### Stage: 4 Challenge Level:

The first part of an investigation into how to represent numbers using geometric transformations that ultimately leads us to discover numbers not on the number line.
