I would like to propose another model based on a slide show from this page: http://www.slideshare.net/evanrusht0n/rushtons-difference-lesson
As a subtraction question, it would look like this: (-2) - (-10) =?
This translates as: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN (-10) AND (-2)??
In our lesson, we will use the number line to help solidify this concept more.
Here is a handout I created to help summarize 2 possible approaches to understanding how you subtract Integers.
I plan to do a recap of the work we have done so far on being mindful and explore another exercise. I did some rethinking about my approach to this exercise and thought I would share a YouTube video related to the topic. Hopefully the concepts won't be too complex for the class to understand. The talk, by Carol Dweck is called the "Power of Yet."
