###### 2:

Understand that zero is neither positive nor negative.

###### 3:

Understand the relationship between positive and negative numbers.

###### Vocabulary:

Positive, Negative

Activities:

• Discussed and accurately defined what positive and negative numbers are using terms that are meaningful.
• Used and applied their understanding of adding and subtracting numbers on a number line to explore how one would add and subtract positive and negative numbers.
• Used color coded dots, in which the colors represent the postive and negative quantities to visually represent a problem and solve for its answer.
• Related subtracting negative numbers to "double negatives" in speech and how a double negative becomes a positive (addition).    ### Home Exploration

###### Challenge Problem:

Solve for the given problems. Use a number line to help visualize where you are on the number line.

###### Challenge Data:

1) -8 + 20 =
2) 25 + (-16) =
3) (-12) + (-21) =
4) 3 - (-17) =
5) (-6) - (-14) =

###### Guiding Questions:
• What is a positive and negative number?
• Where do they appear on a number line?
• When adding, which direction do you move on the number line? What about when you subtract?
• Subtracting a negative number can be tricky! But remember, that's a double negative. What happens when you have a double negative, like "Do not NOT eat the cookie."

1) -8 + 20 = 12
2) 25 + (-16) = 9
3) (-12) + (-21) =-33
4) 3 - (-17) = 20
5) (-6) - 14 = -20 ## Absent Students:
