Using two colors of counting chips, seventh graders review the multiplication of rational numbers and then explore how to divide them. They play an online game, Multiplying and Dividing Signed Numbers, and afterward they devise sign rules for dividing integers. You will find dialogue, diagrams, and links to useful support resources in this well-written lesson plan.
Representing, Identifying, and Comparing Integers
This resource will knock your "sox" off! It comes with so many worksheets, projects, and other attachments that help you prepare your mathematicians to see positive and negative integers in the real world, including the White Sox stadium and the Sears tower in Chicago. In particular, math fans will be able to compare integers, use a number line, find opposites or additive inverses. The materials provided cannot all possibly be described here, so you will have to check it out!
There are three parts to this lesson on integers. In the first, learners explore positive and negative numbers on an actual painter's tape number line and by playing a "Hot Seat" game. In part two, they view a BrainPop video and work with Algebra tiles to consider the addition and subtraction of integers. Finally, the investigate how to multiply and divide integers. This resource is chock-full of ideas, video links, and printable practice pages for you to use in a unit on integers!
Number Sense and Numeration: Integers - Objects Model
Here is a comprehensive task for your middle school mathematicians regarding the multiplication and division of integers. Word problems and practical problems abound, while occasional graphics make the page more visually appealing. A couple of related website addresses areprinted at the top of the page with games that reinforce the same skills.
Ordering, Adding and Subtracting Integers
Prealgebrarians use colored chips, stickers, and pencils to explore the world of integers. They discover absolute value, compare positive and negative integers, and apply operations to them. A detailed procedure for the three-part lesson is provided, as well as pertinent worksheets with answer keys. Nice!
Interesting Integers and Exciting Equations
An 80-page resource provides four lessons and all associated worksheets to teach middle schoolers about expressions and equations. The lessons are hands-on, using games, "integer chips," a balance and cubes, and cut and paste activities. No doubt you'll find something useful here! Take the time to check it out!
Read a series of word problems and have your class identify the process to solve them. They practice identifying, comparing, and ordering integers. They focus on recognizing opposites and the absolute value of number. An assessment handout is included.
Chapter 2: Integers & the Number Line
Here is an extensive set of teacher's notes to help you teach all about integers. Begin by introducing a number line and how it can be used to visualize positive and negative numbers. Talk about absolute value and the additive inverse concept. Finally, instruct your class about applying all four operations to positive and negative integers. Whereas there is nothing out-of-this-world in this resource, it is comprehensive and especially helpful if you are new to teaching these concepts!
The World of Integers
Review operations related to rational numbers and integers using the include PowerPoint presentation, "Interesting Integers." Young mathematicians classify rational numbers as being natural, whole, or integers and read an article about uses of integers in everyday life. They also create a flyer on integers and how they are used in the real world. Multiple web links and attachments are included.
Concept: Multiplying Integers
A three-page handout provides reinforcement of the rules of multiplying positive and negative integers, as well as practice solving this type of problem. Most useful is the chart early in the assignment where learners fill in a column for the sign of the product of different and same-signed numbers. Multiplication practice ensues and includes multi-digit and word problems. If you are looking for a comprehensive homework assignment for integer multiplication, look no further!
Review the concepts of additive inverses and adding positive and negative integers. Relate understanding to the subtraction of integers. This is done with either the use of "Algeblocks" (any square or tile manipulative should do) or a number line. The lesson calls for your class to sing a silly song as they walk the number line, which you could skip if your class is more mature. They also use calculators to grasp the skill. Worksheet links with practice exercises are included.
Math Skiils: Comparing Integers on a Number Line
Here is an attractive assignment that instructs learners how to compare more than one integer on a number line. After the lesson, three practice problems follow. They require learners to place integers on a number line and then order from least to greatest, use inequality symbols to compare pairs of integers, and finally list planets in order of the hottest temperature to coldest. Nice!
Invitation to Integers
Students find zero pairs and add integers using zero pairs and a number line. They generalize rules for adding integers. Students complete a matching activity on the Internet that helps them practice adding integers.
Integer Football and Mouthwatering Math
Teach touchdown style wit two terrific tasks! Pairs of students play integer football, a game in which they use a spinner to determine the positive or negative number of yards that they should move across the field. The spinner and field are included, and can be photocopied onto cardstock for durable play. In a second activity, learners separate colored candies and assign them positive or negative values. Then then work with a partner to add and subtract the values.
A Human Number Line: Teacher Notes
Twenty-one pieces of tagboard can lead your class to a greater understanding of integers when you use them to form a human number line. After creating this math tool, two strategies for adding and subtracting will have your mathematicians up and manipulating positive and negative numbers. Assessment opportunities include suggestions for graphing equations and inequalities.
New! Subtract Integers Using Number Lines
Sea level and debt have what in common? How to introduce subtracting negative numbers to your learners! The video introduces word problems that relate to different subtraction situations. These problems create good scenarios to explain the double subtraction, such as removing debt. Each problem relates back to the number line to show that sometimes we have to add to subtract. This is the second video in a four-part series. Use other videos for more practice with subtracting integers.
Sum of Consecutive Odd Integers
The sum of three consecutive odd integers is 231. What is the largest integer? See how to unpack this word problem, set up an equation, and solve for the variable.
New! Subtract Integers Using Distance on a Number Line
A hard concept to teach is why a double negative becomes a positive. The number line in this video demonstrates how the minus sign relates to the distance between two numbers. Show your learners how subtracting a negative number means to find the distance between those two numbers which adds them together. Also shows the relationship between larger and smaller numbers and whether the answer will be positive or negative. This is the third video in a series of four about subtracting integers.
Introducing the Concept: Multiplying and Dividing With Negative Integers
Review with your math wizards that multiplication is simply a repeated addition operation. Using what they know about adding positive and negative integers, they can extend the knowledge and apply it to multiplication. Once they understand multiplication of integers, they can grasp the process of division. The resource mostly provides a narrative for you to use when teaching these concepts.
Seventh and eighth graders solve math problems where they multiply positive and negative integers. In this multiplication lesson plan, learners use slate boards to complete problems. The step-by-step plan tells you what to write and say to the class as you teach this foundational skill.
