As student enter the room, they will have a seat, take out their Problem of the Day (POD) sheet and begin to work on the question on the SMARTboard. The POD also allows students to use MP 3 continually based on the discussions we have about the problem each day.
Use the number line to model how to perform the following subtraction:
-5 – (-7)
The target for the day is also on the SMARTboard each day when students enter the room. The target for today’s lesson is for students to model subtraction using a number line.
