This 95 page file includes station activities focused on operations with rational numbers. They are designed to align with common core standards for seventh grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.
I created these activities to use in station rotations in a seventh grade classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover Unit 4: Adding and Subtracting Rational Numbers and Unit 5: Multiplying and Dividing Rational Numbers.
As students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:
1. Stations Organization and Tips (5 pages!)
2. Math Match - Integer Addition and Subtraction (36 cards!)
3. Poly-Problem-Solver - Subtracting Rationals (4 different activities!)
4. Roundabouts - Adding Integers (4 different activities!)
5. Article - Integers and Opposites (with graphic organizers!)
6. Triangler - Adding Rationals (16 puzzle pieces!)
7. Poly-Problem-Solver - Dividing Rationals (4 different activities!)
8. Go Fish - Dividing Rationals (36 cards!)
9. Ordering and Operations – Rationals (3 stations in one!)
10. On A Roll - Integer Expressions (unique problems for each student!)
11. Triangler - Multiplying Rationals (16 puzzle pieces!)
When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:
Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.
Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0. For example, a hydrogen atom has 0 charge because its two constituents are oppositely charged.
Understand p + q as the number located a distance |q| from p, in the positive or negative direction depending on whether q is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0 (are additive inverses). Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, p - q = p + (-q). Show that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract rational numbers.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
Understand that multiplication is extended from fractions to rational numbers by requiring that operations continue to satisfy the properties of operations, particularly the distributive property, leading to products such as (-1)(-1) = 1 and the rules for multiplying signed numbers. Interpret products of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
Understand that integers can be divided, provided that the divisor is not zero, and every quotient of integers (with non-zero divisor) is a rational number. If p and q are integers, then -(p/q) = (-p)/q = p/(-q). Interpret quotients of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide rational numbers.
Convert a rational number to a decimal using long division; know that the decimal form of a rational number terminates in 0s or eventually repeats.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.
