Title Adding Negations
Description This is an introduction to negative numbers as zero pairs. It focuses only indirectly on the absolute value of the integers without going into direct instruction on absolute value for its own sake. The bonus problems at the end of the student handout can allow students who need enrichment to branch out into a more abstract concept of how we use the ideas in the lesson.
