Integers Made Easy: Just Walk It Off
Nurnberger-Haag, Julie
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v13 n2 p118-121 Sep 2007
This article describes a multisensory method for teaching students how to multiply and divide as well as add and subtract integers. The author uses sidewalk chalk and the underlying concept of integers to physically and mentally engage students in understanding the concepts of integers, making connections, and developing computational fluency. Students with special needs find this method particularly helpful and engaging. (Contains 4 figures.)
