## Teaching How to Add and Subtract Integers on a Number Line?

We’ve got the perfect resource to get you started! When your students were first introduced to the number line, they were in primary school. They were told that all number lines started with zero and ended wherever they needed to. They learned to add and subtract on number lines, count on number lines, and compare numbers on number lines. That instruction followed those students all the way through primary school, and they believed what that teacher taught them all along.

Fast forward to Year 7, and they discover that there are numbers before that zero, and they have to be able to add and subtract them just like they did in primary. Just like the kindergarten teachers introduced the number line, it’s your turn as a Year 7 teacher (or higher) to introduce your students to this multipurpose tool for adding and subtracting integers.
