## Subtracting Positive and Negative Integers

In this video, we introduce the idea of subtracting integers by using simple subtraction of a positive by a positive (black squares) and negative subtracting a negative (red squares). We then offer a notice and wonder situation when we give black squares, followed by the introduction of a...

## Subtracting Positive and Negative Integers – Part 2

In this post, we continue our work around integers from a visual perspective. You should definitely use the other integer posts first prior to attempting this task as students intuitively build an understanding progressively through each activity. Here, we continue working with...

## Subtracting Positive and Negative Integers – Part 3

In this visualization video, we re-introduce the zero principle to subtracting positive and negative integers. By showing black and red squares combining and disappearing as well as black and red squares re-appearing in an attempt to show that we can add more squares of one colour as long...

## Integer Subtraction Using Number Lines

Let's continue exploring integer subtraction, but this time using a number line as a tool to subtract positive and negative values as well as represent our thinking.

## Integer Subtraction Using Number Lines and Symbolic Notation

Let's continue exploring integer subtraction, but this time we will progress from using colour alone to represent the opposite signs of positive and negative values and explicitly write out these expressions and equations mathematically!

## Visualizing Early Addition and Subtraction Question Structures

In this Math Is Visual video animation and visual prompts, we will explore early addition and subtraction question structures through concrete and visual representations! Learn about joining, separating, part-part whole relationships and comparing relationships.
