Type of activity: individual, small group problem solving (paper and pencil)

Course level: Pre-Algebra

Topic: Integer arithmetic (addition and subtraction)

Materials: flash cards (see attached)

Time required: open ended

Description: Use these flashcards to help your students practice on their own addition and subtraction with integers.

Implementation notes: Use after having taught addition and subtraction with integers. Copy the pages (back to back) onto cardstock. Give each of your students the page and have them cut out their own flashcards, shuffle them, and practice at home. You can also print the cards onto an overhead and "flash" them up quickly for the first 2 or 3 minutes of class to see how they are doing. Remind your students that in order to become proficient at integer arithmetic, they must practice.
