Reflection: Real World Applications Adding and Subtracting Integers - REVIEW! - Section 2: Explore


The questions in this review activity really made my kids think - and draw connections across ideas.  At first, neither group was able to figure out the question about moving 4 spaces on the number line, stopping, then moving two more spaces.  They were stuck in the fact that the person must be going right, and were not open to thinking that she could be going left or right on both moves.  Additionally, this problem brought in the concept of absolute value in the way that the answer choices were worded.  Instead of explaining to the kids how to do the problem - I put it right back on them, at that point they were down to only two choices, but in order to spin the wheel the group had to fully explain why the answer was the absolute value of 2 or 6.
