This fun holiday activity will keep students fluent in all Integer operations. At the same time, students will be reviewing basic facts of multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. Your students will be excited to complete the problems so they can then color the surprise picture.
This activity would also be great for extra credit, early finisher work, math centers, assessment of student proficiency working with integer operations, and substitute work.
Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.
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.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers.
