Resource ID : ELO1033210
Description : Interactive LO. Audio narrative. Read-along with mouse-overs. Exposition followed by interactive
graphing activity. Self-marking. Students have difficulty graphing and remebering what is involved in doing a neat

Remembering Fractions: Grade 8
Resource ID : ELO1088060

activity takes students through several review examples and then the student will practice converting fractions to
decimals and percents through an interactive drag and drop game.

Integer Multiplication Grade 7 Math
Resource ID : ELO1033260
Description : In this interactive LO, students will learn and apply the rules of integer multiplication. Students can
sometimes experience difficulty remembering the somewhat complex set of rules that are applied in the
multiplcation of integers. A clever game-oriented analogy involving "teammates" and "opponents," clarifies these
rules in an appealing grade-approrpiate way that will encourage students to remember the rules, and apply them
successfully in their work.
Keywords : multiplication, integer, times, rules, examples, multiple negative numbers, multiple positive numbers,
multiple positive and negative numbers, signed numbers, multiplication rules

Integers – Negative or Positive? Interactive Tutorial Grade 8
Resource ID : ELO1033460

opportunity to answer several questions on their own.
Keywords : negative, positive, differentiations, numbers, charges, polarity, superscripts, values, absolute, signs

Subtraction of Integers Grade 8 Math
Resource ID : ELO1033400
Description : A particularly vexing topic in mathematics pedagogy is the subtraction of integers. The oft-invoked
concept of 'zero-principle,' while intended to be an aid to clarification, proves to be at times, much to the contrary,
a source of frustration for both teachers and students. This interactive LO, developed to address these issues,
works around the notion of 'zero-principle' by invoking a Hegelian dialectical approach wherein students apply the
principle of polar opposites both to the integer charges and the operations performed on them. Put simply,
students learn to subtract integers by changing the sign of the subtrahend and performing instead of subtraction,
addition on all the terms. An exposition with graphics and audio voice-over is followed by a problem set, wherein
students can practice step-by-step the change-in-signs method.
Keywords : add the opposite, plus, minus, negative, positive, opposite numbers, addition, practice, exercises,
interactive learning

Description : In this activity, students practice their ability to read and interpret graphs. They are going to run a
lemonade stand for the summer to earn some money. Based on last year’s results (displayed in a table), they will
be asked to determine the amount of lemonade they can expect to sell. They must then correctly determine the
amount of lemonade mix and water needed to make the desired amount of lemonade. The students will use their

rectangle.
Keywords : percent, circle, rectangle, MAT2L, estimate, shapes

Making Change (MAT1L)
Resource ID : ELO1142700
