Add Integer Comparision Workshe tCreating an “Add Integer Comparison Worksheet” can help students practice and reinforce their skills in adding integers while also comparing the results. Here’s a detailed description of how to create and use such a worksheet:

Worksheet Title: Add Integer Comparison Worksheet

Objective: The objective of this worksheet is to help students understand the concept of adding integers, practice performing integer addition, and develop the skill of comparing the results of addition operations.

# Worksheet Structure:

• In this section, students will practice adding pairs of integers.

Instructions:

1. a. Calculate 3 + 5. Explanation: 3 + 5 = 8b. Calculate -7 + 2. Explanation: -7 + 2 = -5c. Calculate -4 + (-6). Explanation: -4 + (-6) = -10

Part 2: Comparing the Results

• In this section, students will compare the results of integer addition operations using comparison symbols (>, <, or =).

Instructions: 2. a. Compare the result from (1a) to 9. Explanation: 8 < 9, so write “8 < 9.”

b. Compare the result from (1b) to -3. Explanation: -5 > -3, so write “-5 > -3.”

c. Compare the result from (1c) to -12. Explanation: -10 > -12, so write “-10 > -12.”

Part 3: Word Problems

• In this section, students will apply their knowledge of integer addition and comparisons to solve real-world word problems.

Instructions: 3. a. You have \$10 in your wallet, and you withdraw \$20. Write an expression to compare how much money you have left to your initial amount. Use the appropriate comparison symbol. Explanation: The money left (\$10 – \$20) is less than the initial amount, so write “-10 < 10.”

b. You are at a temperature of -5 degrees Celsius, and the temperature drops by 8 degrees. Write an expression to compare the new temperature to the initial temperature. Use the appropriate comparison symbol. Explanation: The new temperature (-13 degrees) is less than the initial temperature (-5 degrees), so write “-13 < -5.”

Part 4: Challenge Questions

• In this section, include more challenging questions that require multiple steps or critical thinking.

Instructions: 4. a. Calculate -3 + 6 + (-7). Explanation: -3 + 6 + (-7) = -4

b. Calculate 10 + (-4) + (-8) + 12. Explanation: 10 + (-4) + (-8) + 12 = 10

• Provide answers and explanations for each part of the worksheet, including the addition calculations, comparisons, and word problems.

• Encourage students to use number lines or counters to help visualize the addition and comparisons.
• Review the answers as a class, discuss any misconceptions, and provide additional examples if needed.
• Use this worksheet as both a formative assessment and a learning tool to reinforce the concepts of integer addition and comparisons.Add Integer Comparison WorksheetObjective: The objective of this worksheet is to reinforce students’ understanding of adding integers and comparing the outcomes. Students will practice addition with positive and negative integers and use comparison symbols (>, <, or =) to express the relationships between the sums.Worksheet Structure:

Part 1: Adding Integers – Positive with Positive

• In this section, students will add positive integers to positive integers and compare the results.

Instructions:

1. a. Calculate 5 + 3. Explanation: 5 + 3 = 8b. Calculate 8 + 8. Explanation: 8 + 8 = 16c. Calculate 12 + 15. Explanation: 12 + 15 = 27

Part 2: Adding Integers – Negative with Negative

# Instructions:

• 2. a. Calculate -4 + (-6). Explanation: -4 + (-6) = -10b. Calculate -9 + (-9). Explanation: -9 + (-9) = -18c. Calculate -2 + (-1). Explanation: -2 + (-1) = -3

Part 3: Adding Integers – Positive with Negative

• In this section, students will add positive integers to negative integers and compare the results.

Instructions: 3. a. Calculate 7 + (-5). Explanation: 7 + (-5) = 2

b. Calculate -3 + 2. Explanation: -3 + 2 = -1

c. Calculate -8 + 8. Explanation: -8 + 8 = 0

Part 4: Comparing Sum Results

• In this section, students will compare the sum results they calculated in the previous sections using comparison symbols (> or <).

Instructions: 4. a. Compare the result of (1a) to the result of (2a). Explanation: 8 > -10, so write “8 > -10.”

b. Compare the result of (1b) to the result of (2b). Explanation: 16 > -18, so write “16 > -18.”

c. Compare the result of (1c) to the result of (2c). Explanation: 27 > -3, so write “27 > -3.”

Part 5: Word Problems

• In this section, students will apply their knowledge of adding integers and comparisons to solve real-world problems.

Instructions: 5. a. You earned \$15 and then spent \$10. Write an expression to represent your total earnings after earning and spending money. Use the appropriate comparison symbol. Explanation: Earnings: \$15, Spending: -\$10. Total = 15 + (-10) = 5. So, write “Earnings > Spending.”

b. A car gained 20 meters in altitude and then descended 25 meters. Write an expression to compare the car’s final altitude after gaining and losing altitude. Use the appropriate comparison symbol. Explanation: Gained: 20 meters, Descended: -25 meters. Final Altitude = 20 + (-25) = -5 meters. So, write “Final Altitude < Initial Altitude.”
