Today we started to look at adding integers (whole positive and negative numbers).
We used the example of a balloon basket. The negative numbers are the weights. The positive numbers are balloons. For every balloon (positive number) you add, the basket goes one higher up the number line. For every weight (negative number) you add, the balloon goes one lower down the number line.
Here is one of our examples:
We have since looked at how to add integers using a number line.
Here are a few videos which might help you.
