This activity kit (the second in a sequence of activity kits after the addition and subtraction of whole numbers activity kit) accompanies the Touch'N Slide Calculator, a free app available for iPad at the iOS App Store. You can download it for free here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/touchn-slide-calculator/id650194031?mt=8
This kit helps parents or teachers guide their children as they learn how to add and subtract positive and negative integers. As part of the kit, parents will have access to activity ideas, a diagnostic assessment, a chart to track their student or child's progress, and a certificate of achievement for when they have mastered the material.
The Touch'N Slide Calculator and its accompanying activity kits are part of a revolutionary new way of teaching children basic mathematical operations. Children interact kinesthetically with the display, moving up and down the number line as they perform calculations. Initial studies have shown that the calculator enhances children’s cognitive number sense and arithmetic intuition. Your child will not only learn how to perform arithmetic but actually understand how and why it works!
