We’ve spent the past couple of days refreshing our skills with fractions, and today we focused mostly on integers.
We talked about how adding and subtracting integer values can be visualized using a number line, moving either left or right depending on what you’re adding or subtracting. I handed out a practice page which we worked on during class. If you need it, or want to find more like it, look here: https://www.math-drills.com/integers/integers_addition_and_subtraction_2525_001.php (I gave out Version A).
We also talked briefly about multiplying and dividing integers, which most people find easier than adding and subtracting.
Tomorrow we’ll review order of operations skills. See you then!
