Due Date


*The letter is the block!

A. I know the additive inverse property.

(Describe situations in which opposite quantities combine to make 0.) 



b) Take Notes: Khan Academy - Inverse Property of Addition


c) Read: Cool Math - The Additive Inverse Property

d) *Complete:  THATQUIZ - Additive Inverse Practice







B. I can use a visual model (number line or positive/negative chips) to show that an integer and its opposite will always have a sum of zero.

(Understand as the number located a distance |q| from p, in the positive or negative direction depending on whether is positive or negative. Show that a number and its opposite have a sum of 0 [are additive inverses]. Interpret sums of rational numbers by describing real-world contexts.)

a) Take Notes: LearnZillion-Understand the additive inverse


b) Video: Adding using positive/negative chips.

Create a visual model of your choosing to show that an integer and it's opposite equal zero. Such as:

-a SMALL poster or a video








C. I can use a number line or positive/negative chips to show addition of positive and negative numbers.

 Take Notes: Virtual Nerd:  How do you add on a number line? 


 Take Notes:  Adding and Subtracting Integers

7-NS-1-C   Wksh 1


7-NS-1-C  Wksh 2


d) Worksheet: Adding Integers - PG 118 - PS-7


e) Worksheet: Adding Integers - PG 118 - RS-7

 f) Worksheet: 7.NS.1 Adding Integers on a Number Line 






D. I am skilled at converting a subtraction problem into its equivalent addition problem.

(Understand subtraction of rational numbers as adding the additive inverse, p –q = p + (–q). Show that the distance between two rational numbers on the number line is the absolute value of their difference, and apply this principle in real-world contexts.)

E. I can interpret the addition and subtraction of integers by relating the values to real world situations.
  a) IXL - Addition AND Subtraction of Word Problems 

b) Worksheet: Solving Addition Word Problems #'s 1-4 ONLY




d) Worksheet: 7.NS.1 - Integer Problems in a Real World Context





F.  I am skilled at using the properties of operations to add and subtract rational numbers. I can use these skills to solve real world problems involving addition and subtraction of rational numbers.

(Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract rational numbers.)
