Presentation Transcript

• Numbers can be both positive and negative.

• When working with negative numbers there are rules that must be followed.

• Think of some ways that you use negative numbers????

• Think of a greenhouse.

• To regulate the temperature the owner must use ice blocks, and hot coals to decrease/increase the temperature.

• Each ice cube (-1) lowers the temperature by 1 degree

• Each hot coals (+1) increases the temperature by 1 degree.

• The greenhouse is 34º C.

• Tomatoes grow best @ 27º

• How many Ice Cubes are needed to cool down the greenhouse?

32º + ? Ice cubes = 27º

32+(-5) = 27

5 ice blocks are needed.

Each red chip equals (+1)

each blue chip equals (-1)

a) ●●●●

●●●●●

There are 9 blue chips

-4 + (-5)= -9

**When the chips are all the same color, you can just count the number of chips.

B) ●●●●●●●●

●●

-8 + 2 = -6

• Opposite integers cancel each other out.

• -5 + 5 = 0

• 5 + (-5) = 0

• This is called the “Zero Principle”

• Positive integers can be written w/o the +

• Strategy:

“Subtract the two numerals and take the sign of the bigger one”

• 3 – (-2)

●●●

= ●●● ●● ●●

= ●●● ●● ●●

= ●●● ●●

Start with 3 Red. Add 2 blue and 2 red using the zero principle. Take away 2 blue to subtract -2. The integer chips represent the sum 3 + 2. The answer is 5. You can subtract an integer by adding its opposite.

A) -4 – (-2)

= -4 + 2

= -2

B) -3 – 5

= - 3 + (-5)

= -8

• The greenhouse is -7º C.

• Ice wine tastes best @ 2º

• How can we raise the temperature in the greenhouse?

-7 + ? Hot coals = -2º

Or

-7 - ?Ice Cubes = -2

-7 + 9 = 2 or -7 – (-9) = 2
