The lesson below is still images taken from the fully animated PowerPoint I created that is available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store page. If the PowerPoint is not one of my freebies, you may also head over to my YouTube channel to see the slideshow fully animated and can pause as needed to be sure you grasp each concept before moving forward (each lesson will always be free there!).
This lesson will introduce how to add and subtract with both positive and negative numbers. We will observe first how to add with integers using four scenarios. Then, rather than trying to remember more methods, we will discover how to transform any subtraction problem into an addition problem!
So without further ado, read through the slides below to get a feel for how to add and subtract integers and convert between addition and subtraction problems!
Phew, that’s a lot to take in. Once you’ve gone over this and found some practice problems to cement the idea in your head what integers are, you may move on to the next lesson below!
