Level 7 needing advice on malphite

I've only been playing for a few days. I'm not usually a tank guy but he was fun last night. I like not dying. I've seen many full builds on him but I need advice on the best way to play him through the levels. Should I go top, mid, bottom or jungle? Do I kill minions or champs? I appreciate any help you can give. Also, if you don't mind, I'd like to add names to my friends list. Thanx so much. Hal
