The student will
a)   model addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of integers. 
Essential Knowledge and Skills 
  • Model addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of integers using pictorial representations of concrete manipulatives.
Essential Understandings
  • The sums, differences, products and quotients of integers are either positive, zero, or negative. How can this be demonstrated? This can be demonstrated through the use of patterns and models.
Vertical Articulation
