The first part of this assignment gives students a chance to practice matching integer subtraction expressions to their equivalent addition expression and solution. I found that this assignment really helped struggling students who were not understanding how to rewrite the subtraction problem as addition. To make the matches, students make up their own unique designs (see preview for an example). My students were very creative with their designs and they love coloring so everyone was engaged and working hard.
After they finish the color match, the second page has six multiple choice higher level questions about subtracting integers.
