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

Lesson 2: looks at negative rules with all four operations. It includes an excellent keyword slide with all the different words that can come up in exams that pupils need to understand. It also comes with a two-sided worksheet with answers, as well as 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.
