Have students *discover* the rule of signs and not just give it to them:

-repeated addition

-2 negatives make a positive

-negative and positive make a negative

***Emphasis on slideshow on WHAT the negative sign actually means!! It means “take away” for subtraction, but it also means “opposite” and “negative” ****

**Week 4 – Day 5 – – UNIT 1 – Lesson 2-5**

Unit 1 Slideshow

*Objective*: I will divide integers and find the mean of a set of data

*Assess*: Checkpoint 2-4

*Materials*: Deck of Cards (black is positive and red is negative) or Integer Game Cards

*Activity*: Engage New York Module 2 Lesson 12

-Instead of fact families, gave students one multiplication fact 6×4=24 and write all of the ways to write this using integers:

6×4=24

4×6=24

-6×4= -24

6x-4=-24

-4×6= -24

4x-6= -24

Now use these facts to create division equations and they will discover the rule of signs for division.

Have students *discover* the rule of signs and not just give it to them:

-repeated subtraction

-2 negatives make a positive

-negative and positive make a negative

***Emphasis on slideshow on WHAT the negative sign actually means!! It means “take away” for subtraction, but it also means “opposite” and “negative” ****
