The t-chart strategy:

Often times students struggle with adding and subtracting integers because they get too caught up in the signs and the rules. It’s also difficult for students to think of which absolute value is larger they are often struggling to make the connection of why absolute value is even needed in an integer computation problem...Thus, the t-chart strategy was born!

In this bundle you will receive:

3 pages explaining the strategy

A poster in color and B&W

4 full page example pages

1 full page template
