Title: Exploring Integers on a Number Line
Learning Intention: Identifying integers on a number line, comparing integers, and ordering integers.
Lesson Outline:

Introduction (5 minutes) a. Greet the students and explain the learning intention for the lesson. b. Discuss the importance of understanding integers and their representation on a number line. c. Engage students by asking them to share any prior knowledge they have about integers and number lines.

Understanding Integers (10 minutes) a. Define integers as positive and negative whole numbers, including zero. b. Provide examples of integers and nonintegers to reinforce the concept. c. Explain the concept of a number line and its purpose in representing integers visually. d. Demonstrate how to locate integers on a number line, emphasizing the direction and magnitude.

Identifying Integers on a Number Line (15 minutes) a. Distribute individual or small group number lines to each student. b. Provide a set of integers and ask students to locate and mark them on their number lines. c. Encourage students to discuss their findings and clarify any misconceptions. d. Conduct a class discussion to review the correct placement of integers on the number line.

Comparing Integers (15 minutes) a. Introduce the concept of comparing integers using the greater than (>) and less than (<) symbols. b. Provide examples of comparing integers on a number line, emphasizing the direction and distance. c. Engage students in a guided practice session where they compare pairs of integers on their number lines. d. Discuss the results as a class, highlighting the correct use of comparison symbols.

Ordering Integers (15 minutes) a. Explain the process of ordering integers from least to greatest or greatest to least. b. Provide a set of integers and ask students to arrange them in ascending or descending order on their number lines. c. Encourage students to discuss their reasoning and strategies for ordering the integers. d. Conduct a class discussion to review the correct order of the integers.

Conclusion and Recap (5 minutes) a. Summarize the key points covered in the lesson, emphasizing the ability to identify integers on a number line, compare them, and order them. b. Address any remaining questions or concerns from the students. c. Assign practice exercises or provide additional resources for students to reinforce their understanding of integers on a number line.
Note: The duration of each section can be adjusted based on the studentsâ€™ progress and the available class time.
