This activity takes kids through a chunking process of multiplying integers. It breaks down the process of multiplying integers to teach kids what they should be asking themselves as they look at a problem, solve the problem, and even if the answer makes sense. Included in this file is multiple sets of problems so that kids could use this in groups or could be used for different levels of intervention. I have found success with this process for kids that needed extra support for multiplying integers.
Steps in the process include:
Step 1: Will my answer be positive or negative?
Step 2: Evaluate the question.
The last slide puts all of the steps together.
