Lesson Plan : Integers:Quick, Fun, Easy to Learn
Teacher Name: | MS. C. D. WILLIAMS |
Grade: | Grade 7-8 |
Subject: | Math |
Topic: | USING MATH STATIONS TO FACILITATE STUDENT LEARNING AND UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO ADD AND SUBTRACT POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE INTEGERS. |
Content: | VOCABULARY WORDS: ABSOLUTE VALUE, ADDITIVE INVERSE, ALGORITHM, COORDINATES, INTEGERS, NEGATIVE NUMBERS, NUMBER SENTENCE, OPPOSITES, POSITIVE INTEGERS, ORDER OF OPERATIONS, QUADRANTS, RATIONAL NUMBER, IRRATIONAL NUMBER |
Goals: | Students will identify and understand positive and negative numbers. Using this understanding, the students will use the number line, worksheets, manipulatives and computer technology to perform addition and subtraction of integers. This will give the students the knowledge to extend the whole number system in both directions as well as magnitude. |
Objectives: | Students will: * Understand the vocabulary as it relates to each activity. * Understand the number line concept using positive and negative integers with and without counters. * Create real world integer models. * Be able to accurately perform addition and subtraction of integers using the addition and subtraction of integer rules. |
Materials: | Teacher Resource Sheets Student Resource Sheets Manipulatives Worksheets Computer Overhead projector |
Introduction: | Today's lesson students will review what they have learned about absolute value, and the addition and subtraction of integers. Today we will use manipulatives to add and subtract integers. Teacher will review vocabulary words previously discussed and introduce the new word for today-zero pairs using manipulatives. |
Development: | Today we are going to add and subtract integers using the addition and subtraction rules using positive and negative counters and zero pairs. The teacher will model subtraction problems on the overhead usinging counters to show additive inverse |
Practice: | Students will visit one of six math stations (approximately every 15 minutes) to complete a worksheet, finding absolute value, add integers, subtract integers with positive and negative counters, as well as use the manipulatives on the pre-selected websites to practice these skills. |
Accommodations: | Students will be grouped with students of different learning levels. Students will be allowed to work together. |
Checking For Understanding: | Teacher will monitor the student's knowledge of subtraction of integers as they model the processes presented. Given several examples, students will show their understanding of positive and negative integers by justifying why their answers are correct in numbers and words, when requested on the worksheets. |
Closure: | Prior to the end of class, students will come back together and share their experience at the various math stations, discussing/sharing what they learned and what they may have had difficulty with. |
Evaluation: | An assessment will be administered when the activities are completed by all groups |
