Students watch a dot get tossed from one number on a number line to the opposite of the number. Students predict where the dot will land each time based on its starting location.Key ConceptsThe opposite of a number is the same distance from 0 as the number itself, but on the other side of 0 on a number line.In the diagram, m is the opposite of n, and n is the opposite of m. The distance from m to 0 is d, and the distance from n to 0 is d; this distance to 0 is the same for both n and m. The absolute value of a number is its distance from 0 on a number line.Positive numbers are numbers that are greater than 0.Negative numbers are numbers that are less than 0.The opposite of a positive number is negative, and the opposite of a negative number is positive.Since the opposite of 0 is 0 (which is neither positive nor negative), then 0 = 0. The number 0 is the only number that is its own opposite.Whole numbers and the opposites of those numbers are all integers.Rational numbers are numbers that can be expressed as ab, where a and b are integers and b ≠ 0.Goals and Learning ObjectivesIdentify a number and its oppositeLocate the opposite of a number on a number lineDefine the opposite of a number, negative numbers, rational numbers, and integers

Working With Rational Numbers

Type of Unit: Concept

Prior Knowledge

Students should be able to:

Compare and order positive and negative numbers and place them on a number line. Understand the concepts of opposites absolute value.

Lesson Flow

The unit begins with students using a balloon model to informally explore adding and subtracting integers. With the model, adding or removing heat represents adding or subtracting positive integers, and adding or removing weight represents adding or subtracting negative integers.

Students then move from the balloon model to a number line model for adding and subtracting integers, eventually extending the addition and subtraction rules from integers to all rational numbers. Number lines and multiplication patterns are used to find products of rational numbers. The relationship between multiplication and division is used to understand how to divide rational numbers. Properties of addition are briefly reviewed, then used to prove rules for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

This unit includes problems with real-world contexts, formative assessment lessons, and Gallery problems.

Students use the Hot Air Balloon interactive to model integer addition. They then move to modeling addition on horizontal number lines. They look for patterns in their work and their answers to understand general addition methods.Key ConceptsTo add two numbers on a number line, start at 0. Move to the first addend. Then, move in the positive direction (up or right) to add a positive integer or in the negative direction (down or left) to add a negative integer.Here is −6 + 4 on a number line: The rule for integer addition (which extends to addition of rational numbers) is easiest to state if it is broken into two cases:If both addends have the same sign, add their absolute values and give the result the same sign as the addends. For example, to find −5 + (−9), first find |−5| +|−9| = 14. Because both addends are negative the result is negative. So, −5 + (−9) = −14.If the addends have different signs, subtract the lesser absolute value from the greater absolute value. Give the answer the same sign as the addend with the greater absolute value. For example, to find 5 + (−9), find |−9| − |5| = 9 − 5 = 4. Because −9 has the greater absolute value, the result is negative. So, 5 + (−9) = −4.Goals and Learning ObjectivesModel integer addition on a number line.Learn general methods for adding integers.

Students use number lines to solve addition and subtraction problems involving positive and negative fractions and decimals. They then verify that the same rules they found for integers apply to fractions and decimals as well. Finally, they solve some real-world problems.Key ConceptsThe first four lessons of this unit focused on adding and subtracting integers. Using only integers made it easier for students to create models and visualize the addition and subtraction process. In this lesson, those concepts are extended to positive and negative fractions and decimals. Students will see that the number line model and rules work for these numbers as well.Note that rational number will be formally defined in Lesson 15.Goals and Learning ObjectivesExtend models and rules for adding and subtracting integers to positive and negative fractions and decimals.Solve real-world problems involving addition and subtraction of positive and negative fractions and decimals.
