Content Standard: M a t h e ma t i c a l R e a s o n i n g & N u mb e r S e n s e   Level:Partial

Specific Statement(s) from the Standard:

Standard: Apply skills of mathematical representation, communication and reasoning throughout the remaining four
content strands.
    2. Appropriately use examples and counterexamples to make and test conjectures, justify solutions and explain

Standard: Use positive and negative rational numbers, represented in a variety of ways, to quantify information and to
solve real-world and mathematical problems.
     3. Locate and compare positive and negative rational numbers on a number line.

A television or radio broadcast, a brochure, display, poster, rap, song or letter

Task Description:
The student is responsible for creating a product that explains the proper procedure for adding, subtracting, multiplying or
dividing positive and negative integers. The product must correctly explain how to do the procedures and should include
examples for each operation. The examples must be grade level appropriate and the product should be attractive and
interesting so that it will capture the audience’s attention. Those that choose to produce a television or radio broadcast must
submit a written copy of the script with their project.

Special Notes:
