RE: Operation of Integers: Addition

in Educationlast year

When teaching addition and subtraction of positive and negatives, I make use of a little bird image and depending on the operation, and +/- value of each number in the equation, the bird will face different directions. It doesn't sound very helpful here, but when explained correctly in class, I find this process really assists students in applying this concept.

Somehow it is another approach to teaching abstract topic like math having the concrete example. As they say there are many ways on how to kill a chicken. Thank you for sharing your strat..
