Today in class, students reviewed the concept of positive and negative integers on the numberline, how that as you move UP the numberline, integers grow bigger and bigger (see attached notes) and that as you move DOWN the numberline, integers grow smaller and smaller (see attached notes). Students worked together whole group on two activities during class. One activity practiced skills identifying integers and the second skill focused on ordering integers in specific ways.

Students also completed a classwork/homework activity before class ended. That activity is attached as well.

Tuesday, October 22nd

Students began their study of Integers Tuesday in class. The concept of positive and negative numbers is a foundational skill that is introduced in 6th grade and is vital to the student’s understanding of upper level maths and sciences. The notes we took Tuesday in class are attached below. We also completed an activity where we identified the appropriate integer for a specific situation. That activity (homework) is also attached below. Almost all students were able to complete the activity with me in class!
