In this Adding and Subtracting Rational Numbers Loop Activity, students will solve 10 problems that involve applications of rational operations. They can choose any of the 10 to start with, and the answer to that problem will be atop another problem. That will be the next problem to solve. The students continue solving until they arrive at the last problem, and the answer to that problem should be atop the first card.

This is a great self-checking activity because the students will immediately know if they have the correct answers. This frees up the teacher to work with students who are struggling on a more one-on-one basis.

Students will need to know how to add and subtract positive and negative fractions and decimals in order to achieve success with this activity.

Included in this file are:
--2-page recording sheet
--10 word problems that students will cut out and glue onto the recording sheet
