In this supplementary activity to Adding and Subtracting Integers, students will make connections between everyday purchases and adding and subtracting positive and negative integers; using logic to determine whether the answer is positive or negative.
During Discussion and Demonstration, students are guided step by step through three different math scenarios to reinforce problem solving, while the Student Task portion has students create their own "Math Libs” (from provided sentence frames) to demonstrate their ability to create successful integer word problems.
