Adding Negatives – Carefully Varied


A simple looking exercise on negative numbers, which has been put together in a way such that key phenomena become clear. I would ask pupils to categorise each of the types of question (after doing them) to encourage them to generalise about common situations that occur.  “A big negative and smaller positive equals a negative when added together” etc.
