In this webinar, we will explore the key points in teaching integers, highlighting common areas of difficulty for students and discussing strategies to overcome them. We will examine the impact of our language choices, such as the phrase 'minus minus makes plus,' and how these can sometimes lead to frustration and confusion. Additionally, we will explore alternative teaching methods, tools, and strategies to better support student learning. We will also review the best resources available for concept development and diagnostic assessment to effectively aid students' mastery of integers.
