See if they made a connection to addition. Homework page 453: 2, even, 33, and 36. Page 8 of 20

9 Day 3 Objective Students will be able to: Use algebra tiles to represent integer subtraction & determine differences. Develop rules for subtracting a pair of integers. Materials algebra tiles, worksheets, overhead projector, algebra tiles for the overhead. Opening Activity Distribute worksheets and algebra tiles. Activity #1 Have students demonstrate problems 1 and 2 on the overhead. This should be extremely simple and take virtually no time. Activity #2 Model problem 3 on the overhead. Ask the students questions to recall the information they acquired yesterday. Activity #3 Have students do problems 4 and 5 by themselves. After a few minutes, have them check their answers and discuss their solutions with their partners. Select students to demonstrate their solutions on the overhead. Activity #4 Have students complete the chart in problem 6 and review their answers. Activity #4 Discuss question 7 and relate subtraction to addition. Closing Activity Have rewrite the subtraction problems (8-11) and review their answers. Collect the tiles and review the subtraction to addition rule. Homework page : 8-20 even, 32. Page 9 of 20

10 Subtracting Integers 1. Use algebra tiles to model the subtraction problem (+5) - (+3). Sketch your model below. Cross out the tiles that you are removing to represent the tiles being subtracted. What is the difference of +5 and +3? 2. Use algebra tiles to model the addition problem (-5) - (-2). Sketch your model below. What is the difference of -5 and -2? 3. Use algebra tiles to model the addition problem (+1) - (+3). Sketch your model below. What is the difference of +1 and +3? 4. Use algebra tiles to model the addition problem (-3) - (-5). Sketch your model below. What is the difference of -3 and -5? Page 10 of 20

11 5. Use algebra tiles to model the addition problem (+2) - (-3). Sketch your model below. What is the difference of +2 and -3? 6. Use algebra tiles to find the sums and difference in the table below. (+1) + (-6) = (-4) + (-1) = (-1) + (+1) = (+2) + (+2) = (-3) + (-7) = (+1) - (+6) = (-4) - (+1) = (-1) - (-1) = (+2) - (-2) = (-3) - (+7) = 7. Describe how to rewrite an integer subtraction problem as an integer addition problem. Rewrite each subtraction problem as an addition problem and evaluate (-18) = (+18) = (-18) = (+18) = Page 11 of 20
