Lesson Objective

SWBAT compare and order integers

Lesson Plan

Standard

6NSO.N3

Know that numbers and their opposites add to 0 and are on opposite sides at equal distance from 0 on a number line; know that 0 is an integer that is neither negative nor positive

 

Aim/Objective:

Key Points

SWBAT compare and order integers

·        

 

·         The further right an integer is on the number line the greater it is.

·         The larger the absolute value of a negative integer, the smaller that integer is

Assessment:

Exit Ticket:

1.        Which list is in order from greatest to least?

a.       -28, -25, -6, -1

b.       -4, -2, 1, 15

c.        8, -4, -32, -31

d.       14, -15, -87, -97

Lesson

Do Now:

Materials:

Intro/Direct Instruction:

·         Define integers as counting numbers and their opposites (1, 2, 3, 4….-1, -2, -3…) (non-integers:

·         Define opposites through example:  4 and -4 are opposites.  The reason they are opposites is because when we look at a number line, 4 and -4 are both the same distance from zero. 

·         Each number on a number line is named based on how far away from zero it is – numbers to the right of zero are positive numbers, numbers to the left of zero are negative numbers

·         On the number line numbers get bigger as you move to the right – show that it doesn’t matter where in the number line you are located – that this always holds true.

·         Students take notes on key points in notes packets.

Guided Practice

·         Display a number line.  Ask students to place 6 and its opposite on the number line

·         Ask students to place markers on number line at 5, -2, 0 and -5

·         Ask students to list those numbers in order from least to greatest

Independent Practice:

·         Students complete worksheet on integers and comparing/ordering integers.

Closing

·         Review Key Points (through questioning with students) How can I use a number line to compare numbers?

·         Students complete exit ticket

·        

 

Accommodations

Reminder of symbols used for comparison.

Number line to work with – labeled from -20 to 20 on desk.
