Integers & Absolute Value Introduction PREVIEW
This animated Math Slideshow lesson starts out introducing numbers systems including whole numbers, natural & counting numbers, and integers. The lesson teaches opposites, absolute value, and comparing numbers using the inequality symbols less than and greater than.
Add Integers Using a Number Line PREVIEW
This animated Math Slideshow teaches how to add integers using a vertical number line and review adding integers using a hands on model.

SLIDESHOW THUMBNAILS: The slideshow thumbnails (on the left of your screen) are
samples of slides you would see during the Math lesson or during the
study guide note section taken at the end of the lesson. The thumbnails are
posted to give you examples of what you would be purchasing (and are fully copyrighted.) The
Math lesson slideshows come fully animated, which means each individual

TEACHER NOTE ABOUT INTEGERS: With all of my Math slide shows, I try to reach all the learning modalities for all types of learners. For example, when I teach the topic of integers I start with a hands-on model, which is interactive with students using algebra tiles or tile spacers and using an interactive website that involves virtual manipulatives. This is really useful for the learner who needs to visually see what a positive and negative is. The next day I teach the lesson using a vertical number line so that students can relate it to real life such as being on an elevator. In doing this, students see the content standard in multiple ways and it reaches all types of learners in the classroom. The next lesson involves the rules and using what we have learned and discovered. After several days of seeing the concept differently students can really understand why subtracting a negative is really adding a positive (and not just memorizing the rules.) So with all of my lessons I try to meet the needs of all types of learners, and most importantly I don’t just tell my students to memorize the rules, I let them discover the rules and I always show they why something works. This is very powerful in a Mathematics classroom!
