Really liked the connection to the real world with the examples used in this lesson.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Limited (1)

Rather just asking students how else they use this type of math in their everyday life, it would have improved the lesson to have students create their own world problems using integers.

Quality of Instructional and Practice Exercises: Limited (1)

The assessments were lacking. I thought the demonstration section was strong, but the lesson fell apart after that. The integration of real world word problems was great, as many students need to practice with those, but there was not enough offered for students to really work through the concept.

Quality of Assessments: Limited (1)

Only 10 practice problems and 5 word problems did not give students enough practice with the concept.

Utility of Materials Designed to Support Teaching: Strong (2)

Using the number line to demonstrate the concept was a great hands-on manipulative for students to use.

Building on previous lessons. Good use of vocabulary and examples.

The standards expects that a lesson will explain the meaning of 0 in each problem but the lesson only mentions zero in few places at about the beginning of the lesson.
