6th Grade Math Comparing and Ordering Integers in a PowerPoint Presentation
This slideshow lesson is very animated with a flow-through technique. I developed the lesson for my 6th grade class, but it can also be used for upper level class reviews. This lesson teaches how to use a number line to compare positive and negative integers, use a number line to order positive and negative integers for real-life situations, and solve real-life problems using a number line to find the highest city in elevation on a map.
This lesson has SKELETON NOTES
, notes that have the problem only. This will allow for the students to follow the lesson easier. There are 6 slides per page. They are in a pdf form for easy printing. I also attached the Word document for you to EDIT
. If you won’t be doing all of the problems you can shorten what you print off for the skeleton notes.
The lesson is in an editable format
so you can tailor the lesson to your class. The problems and clipart can’t be edited
due to the TOU and to maintain the copyright integrity of the product. If you need an alternative version because your country uses different measurements, units, or slight wording adjustment for language differences just email me at PrestonPowerPoints@gmail.com. I am respond to email quickly.
The presentation has 24 slides with LOTS of whiteboard practice. Use as many or as few of the problems to help your students learn each concept. For more PowerPoint lessons & materials visit Preston PowerPoints
Students often get lost in multi-step math problems. This PowerPoint lesson is unique because it uses a flow-through technique, guided animation, that helps to eliminate confusion and guides the student through the problem. The lesson highlights each step of the problem as the teacher is discussing it, and then animates it to the next step within the lesson. Every step of every problem is shown, even the minor or seemingly insignificant steps. A helpful color-coding technique engages the students and guides them through the problem (Green is for the answer, red for wrong or canceled numbers, & blue, purple & sometimes orange for focusing the next step or separating things.) Twice as many examples are provided, compared to a standard textbook. All lessons have a real-world example to aid the students in visualizing a practical application of the concept.
This lesson applies to the Common Core Standard:
The Number System 6.NS.6c, 6.NS.7a, 6.NS.7b
Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers.
6. Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.
c. Find and position integers and other rational numbers on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram; find and position pairs of integers and other rational numbers on a coordinate plane.
7. Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
a. Interpret statements of inequality as statements about the relative position of two numbers on a number line diagram. For example, interpret -3 > -7 as a statement that -3 is located to the right of -7 on a number line oriented from left to right.
b. Write, interpret, and explain statements of order for rational numbers in real-world contexts. For example, write -3 oC > -7 oC to express the fact that -3 oC is warmer than -7 oC.
