Yikes, They Still Can't Add, Subtract, Multiply or Divide Integers! (V)
Participants will be engaged in activities that lead then through the use of concrete materials, integer tiles, then to drawing pictures from their experience with the integer tiles and then move to the use of symbols to represent the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of integers. During the session participants will work in teams of four to solve and discuss tasks that promote conceptual understanding of computation with integers. The teams then will be asked to work through tasks that can be used in their classrooms. The key focus of this presentation is to present and alternative to using the number line and colored chips to develop conceptual understanding of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing integers.

Making Secondary Math Accessible for All
We are a 8-9 math team that works to make secondary math content, as well as number sense and proportional thinking, accessible to all learners through hands-on materials and movement. We have used these strategies in Algebra 1 courses in the past to overcome significant math deficits and allow students to learn at the same pace as their peers.
