### Integer cruncher: subtraction

Use counters to model the subtraction of integers, for example (-3)-(-5)=(+2). See the calculations represented in an alternate form on a number line. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.

Use counters to model the addition of integers, for example (-2)+(+5)=(+3). See the calculations represented in an alternate form on a number line. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.

### Scale matters: range of numbers

Explore the use of scale on a number line. Select a ruler displaying a scale such as ones, tenths or hundredths. Look at a pair of numbers marked on a number line. Identify the number corresponding to another point. Or locate another point on the number line to complete a series of three numbers. Apply a marked scale to ...

### Scale matters: negatives

Explore the use of scale on a number line. Select a ruler displaying a helpful scale such as ones. Look at a pair of numbers such as -5 and -2 marked on a number line. Identify the number corresponding to another point. Or locate another point on the number line to complete a series of three numbers. Apply a marked scale ...

### Integer cruncher: addition and subtraction

Use counters to model the addition and subtraction of integers. For example, (-2)+(+5)=(+3) or (-2)–(-5)=(+3). See the calculations represented in an alternate form on a number line. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.

### Exploring integers

Calculate the change in temperature between two days. Notice that the temperature difference may be positive or negative. For example, if the temperature is 17 °C one day and 14 °C the next day, then the temperature change is -3 °C. Watch a video showing how temperature is expressed using integers. Find out why temperature ...

### Exploring exponents and scientific notation

Examine a group of eight numbers expressed using scientific notation. Sort them into positive and negative numbers. Group them according to whether they are greater or less than -1, 0 and 1. Arrange the numbers within each group in ascending order.

### Exploring number patterns

Find an addition or subtraction pattern relating to four numbers on a grid. Predict the next three numbers in the pattern. For example, predict the next three numbers in the following sequence: 60, 53, 46, 39...

### Scale matters: all numbers: assessment

Test your understanding of the use of scales, ranging from tens of thousands or thousands through to ones, tenths or hundredths. Look at two numbers and place a third number on a number line. Rename the third number by assigning place values for each digit or group of digits. For example, look at the numbers 105 384 and ...
