Investigating Addition/Subtraction of Integers
After reading an article in TES regarding Mr Barton's &'soup method&'; I created these resources for the pupils to visually see the addition of negative numbers. I made group sets of 10 red and blue cubes and 1 of each of the other 3D shapes mentioned. Each group then had a bowl in which they put there items in. Hope this is helpful. Any comments and/or suggestions are welcome.\n[In Scotland this was used for E&O MNU 3-04a]
