Think Rational, Be Rational

Our Grade 7 math class has been extending our knowledge and application of rational numbers in the real world.  We are learning how to add and subtract positive and negative integers while learning to be rational in our steps and the ways in which we model our thinking. 

We are exploring online interactive manipulatives and programs to demonstrate understanding while collaborating our ideas with our classmates. In this unit, we are working together, expressing our ideas while developing our reasoning skills to present accurate and logical solutions via technology.  It is a new and exciting start to our online learning journey! 

In groups, students identified and created a real-world situation that uses integers and chose which technological tool they would use to present their solution to the class.
