Our interactive Integers – Adding and Subtracting Lesson Plan equips students to add and subtract integers with practical understanding.  With a review of the process of combining integers and ample additional resources to solidify understanding, students are prepared to generalize examples where integers are used.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Display random integers for all students to see. Ask students why a “plus” sign or “minus” sign is written in front of each number.
  2. Allow for responses and discussion.
  3. Ask students if they think it is possible to add or subtract integers.
  4. Allow for responses and discussion. Introduce adding and subtracting integers.
  5. Distribute Integers (Add & Subtract) content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Carefully review the process of combining integers. Use the additional resources and extra examples to enhance understanding.
  6. Distribute Activity pages. Read and review the instructions. Distribute scissors. Give students sufficient time to write out some problems by first manipulating the numbers. Remind students not to repeat problems. Circulate through the room asking students to demonstrate some of their problems for you.
  7. Once completed, allow students to exchange with another student to check each other’s work. If there are any discrepancies, display the problem for all students to see and review together. Collect all work and review for accuracy.
  8. Distribute Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses.
  9. Distribute the Homework page. The next day, check and review the students’ responses.
  10. In closing, ask students to give other examples of where integers would be used. What business industries, etc.? (banking, fitness centers, health, etc.)
  11. Allow for responses and discussion.
  12. Complete the lesson by asking each student a random integer problem.
