Grade 6: Belonging, Lesson 1 (MDK12 Remix)

This lesson guides students in an examination of a poet's use of figurative language and word choice to convey themes of belonging and identity.  Students will delve into the concept of the unit theme, “Belonging” and the essential question, "In what ways does our need to feel a sense of belonging conflict with our individuality?" Students will write a short essay analyzing the ways in which a poet uses figurative language and word choice to convey the speaker's sense of him/herself as an individual and as someone who feels he/she is not accepted. Image source:  "Attain" by Nick Youngson from TheBlueDiamondGallery.com at http://thebluediamondgallery.com/tablet-dictionary/a/attain.html  Creative Commons 3 - CC BY-SA 3.0

Integers Lesson 1.4:   Adding same signed numbers using number line
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

For many adult students, positive and negative integers are an example of when math “keeps changing the rules.” This is the fourth of six lessons guiding students in constructing the abstract concepts necessary to understand adding positive and negative integers.
This lesson will review previous knowledge about negative numbers and teach adding integers with the same sign. The previous lesson focused on “real life situations” and this will teach expressing those real life situations on a number line. The actual problems will still be adding integers of the same sign because of the prevalence of confusion with adding two negative numbers.
