This is first lesson looking at negative numbers using the four different operations (add, subtract, multiply and divide) and lots of different real-life contexts. 16 slides.

Lesson 1: looks at negatives in real life and starts to build on some of the rules for negatives. It comes with a handout (good for differentiation within classes) and a worksheet with answers. It has excellent clear examples and teaching slides that are full of custom animation and everything you need including keywords, learning objectives, starter and plenary.

It is designed for KS3, but in my experience, even top sets at KS4 often have issues with negatives. When I teach negatives to KS3, I thus look to teach it as thoroughly as possible and so for some groups, it will be 3 lessons or even 4. I have included plenty of worksheets and material.
