Unit on Integers

I have published my entire Unit on Integers, with plenty of connections to the real world. It includes 10 in-depth lessons that walk students through signed numbers and integer operations as follows:

  1. Introduction to Integers defines the set of integers and their basic properties.
  2. Absolute Value concepts and notation are presented as the distance from zero on the number line.
  3. Comparing and Ordering Integers is presented with and without the number line.
  4. Integer Addition is shown with the number line, and though arithmetic.
  5. Integer Subtraction is shown with the number line, and through arithmetic.
  6. Integer Multiplication is performed two factors at a time, and then three at a time.
  7. Integer Division follows easily after the rules for multiplication.
  8. Operations with Integers differentiates between all rules learned in a mixed review format.
  9. My Practice Exercises page has 10 additional quiz problems for assessment.
  10. My Challenge Exercises page offers 10 additional real-world problems.
There are a total of 60 interactive exercises in this unit, so students will get plenty of practice. Be sure to bring your entire class!
