Students need to practice their integer rules at least 3 times a week.
Adding integers: If the signs are the same then just add the numbers and keep the sign. If the signs are different, subtract and keep the sign of the number with the bigger absolute value.

Subtracting integers: Keep, change, opposite and then follow rules for addition.

Multiple and divide: If the signs are the same, then the answer will be positive. If the signs are different, the answer will be negative.

Students need to practice their fluency skills with rational numbers (decimals and fractions). They need to be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide with rational numbers.

If you have not signed up for remind 101, please do so.

When we return from the break, we will be working on 2 step equations.
