Possible Introductory task
Possible Secondary Task
This task is designed for the patterns inherent in the additive relationships between integers to become more apparent. It could be used to help learners further develop their “sense” of negative ordering and value. A possible follow up task might be to either give learners a set of negative number questions, which follow no obvious pattern, and ask them place them on a number line. Some questions which give the same solution might be nice! An alternative approach might be to ask learners to generate their own set of questions and then to place them.
