Lesson Overview

Welcome back!

Today well spend some time reviewing some of the things we learned
about positive and negative integers last year.

Afterwards, we will focus a lot more on comparing integers, ordering


integers, and a new topic, absolute value.

Mr. Es Guess My Number Game 4 minutes

I am going to be thinking of a number.

You may only ask me 3 questions

You must raise your hand and wait to


be called in order to ask a question.

3) Mr. Dunne, Mr. E and Mr. Campbell are playing a card game. The object of the
game is to finish with the most points. The scores at the end of the game are:

Mr. E: -5, Mr. Campbell: -7, Mr. Dunne: 0.

1) Mr. Dunne, Mr. E and Mr. Campbell played another round of their card game. This time,
the scores were different:

Mr. E: -1, Mr. Campbell: -2, Mr. Dunne: -4. Who won? Who came in last place?

2) In VSC Math, two students are debating the relationship between rational numbers. Read
their claims below, then write an explanation of who is correct and how you know.

Student As claim: I know that 3 is greater than 2 2. So, -3 must be greater than - 22.

Student Bs claim: Yes, 3 is greater than 2

1
2

, but when you look at their opposites, their

order will be opposite. So that means -2 2 is greater than -3.

What is the value of each number?


Which number is larger?

5 Minutes!

I will think of two numbers.

I will give you clues to help you find out what numbers I am thinking of.

Your role is to determine the value of each number and state which one is greater!

Use the number line diagram below to help you! Four rounds!
