Purpose: The overarching goal of this lesson is to teach students about positive and negative numbers. This fits into the ‘bigger picture’ because it will help all students to understand how to add, subtract, multiply and divide negative numbers. This lesson comes after learning about the order of operations and before we get into absolute value.
Objectives: As a result of this lesson:
• Students will be able to identify integers as positive and negative numbers.
• Students will be able to solve equations with integers using the order of operations.
