BEFORE YOU TEACH THE STANDARD ALGORITHM….
During this activity, students will use integer models and number lines to add and subtract integers. This activity can be used as independent practice, a partner activity, or as an assessment.
It’s important to teach students that an addition sentence has an equivalent subtraction sentence. The Adding and Subtracting Integers using Models Power Point located in my store can be used as the direct teach/guided practice tool for this activity.
