Negative numbers - subtracting a negative number
A complete lesson on subtracting a negative number.

Activities included:

Some recap questions on adding a negative number (I always teach this first).

A slide showing a number pattern to demonstrate the logic of subtracting a negative.
Example question pairs with number lines, for pupils to practice and give a chance to provide instant feedback.
A set of differentiated questions.
A more challenging task for pupils to discuss in pairs, where they try to find examples or counterexamples for different scenarios.

A deceptively simple puzzle to consolidate the key point of the lesson.

Printable worksheets and answers included.
