Lesson: Compare and Order Integers
Lesson Objective
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 2.

Lesson


Do Now:
Materials:
Intro/Direct Instruction:
· Define integers as counting numbers and their opposites (1, 2, 3, 4….1, 2, 3…) (nonintegers:
· 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.
