Integer Lessons Review

Hi Ellie,

I've collected a few different links to lessons on how to add, subtract, multiply and divide integers. They're all pretty much the same, so try them all and stick with the one you like best. ;-)

Integer Games

Hi Ellie,

I suspect you haven't worked your way through ALL the links I've left you recently. Most of them are the same sort of questions you'll have to write on your class tests. Take advantage of that. The best way to practice for a running race is to do a lot of running. The best way to practice for a math test is to take a lot of math tests. ;-)

But, it can get a little boring only taking tests. So, to make it a little more interesting I've put together a list of links to integer games. You'll still have to remember how to add, subtract (we don't really subtract anymore, smart kids like you add the opposite), multiply and divide. Also, don't forget PEDMAS.

Anyway, let's get to the games ....

Have Fun!

The Last 100 ...

Hi Ellie,

I thought this might interest you ... where did the last 100 visitors to your blog come from? (The "unlisted 8" came from Spain.) ;-)

There and Back Again

Hi Ellie!

This time I've got some quizzes that take us all the way back to multiplication, factors and fractions and then back to where we are now; integers.

I'm also throwing in some movies so you can take the occasional break and see how things are done as many times as you like. ;-)

Remember, every time you refresh the quiz page or click on one of these links you'll get a new quiz to practice with! Here we go ......

So that's a lot of review and little bit on integers. I'm not sure if you started multiplying and dividing integers in class yet. If not, I've got a couple of movies below that help explain how it works. You can get a head start on the rest of your class!!

In future posts I'll continue to include review material from stuff we've already covered to help you improve and stay sharp. ;-)

Now, let's see what's on in the math theatre today .....

There's a lot here ... hmm .... maybe too much ... maybe I went a little overboard!?! ;-) Take it at whatever pace is good for you. Most of it is review. Spend most of your time on stuff that you most need to practice. A ... B ... C ya! ;-)

Adding and Subtracting Integers

Hi Ellie,

First I've got three "leesons" I want you to read. Then you'll practice your skills using the online quizzes below.

Integers (les nombres entiers) is a VERY important topic. You're going to use them in every math class from now on. The good news is, you probably already know a lot about them. Living in Winnipeg you know the difference between positive and negative temperatures. If it's -5 degrees celcius outside, how much does the temperature have to go up to get to +5 degrees? If you know the answer to that question (I put it at the end of this blog post) then you know two really important math facts:

(1) -5 and +5 are two completely different numbers and
(2) when you figured out the answer YOU WERE DOING ALGEBRA! (See, I told you you're smart. You can do algebra without even realizing it!)

OK, here are the lessons:

The quizzes have 5 questions each. If you refresh the page you'll get a new set of 5 questions, so you can do as many as you like. Also, there is a [Hint] button you can click, if you need it, for each question. Here they are:

Let me know how you do with these quizzes. Are they too hard, too easy, too much? (The answer to the question at the top of this post is +10 (positive 10), "positive" because it went up.)
