There are six questions for each problem. Each time you give the correct response the questions will advance. Once you go through questions 1-6 you must reset the browser to refresh the page.

**Try the following and record the answers on your answer key. Also, record how many boxes were cancelled out if any:**1. -7 + 3 2. 8 + (-6) 3. 3 + (-8) 4. -5 + 2

*(If this were a real classroom I would use four-five problems of each type: (+)+(+), (+)+(-), (-)+(+), and (-)+(-).)*

**On your answer sheet record any patterns that you have noticed.**

**What rules can you create that will help you solve all integer addition problems?**

*(The questions above would be repeated with integer subtraction problems.)*
