              Comparing Positive and Negative Numbers

              Students learn about comparing positive and negative numbers and calculating the difference between the two.  Throughout the lesson students use the greater than (>) and less than (<) symbols to make comparisons.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use a number line to compare the size of positive and negative numbers.
              • Most students should be able to use inequality notation to compare the size of numbers.
              • Some students should be able to compare the size and magnitude of positive or negative fractions and decimals.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
