Lesson Objectives and Overview: Multiplying and Dividing Integers introduces students to working with positive and negative integers. The included manipulative is a great way for students to visualize the concept and practice solving problems. This lesson is for students in 6th grade.
Every lesson plan provides you with a classroom procedure page that outlines a step-by-step guide to follow. You do not have to follow the guide exactly. The guide helps you organize the lesson and details when to hand out worksheets. It also lists information in the orange box that you might find useful. You will find the lesson objectives, state standards, and number of class sessions the lesson should take to complete in this area. In addition, it describes the supplies you will need as well as what and how you need to prepare beforehand. There are no supplies needed for this lesson. To prepare for this lesson ahead of time, you can copy the handouts.
Options for Lesson
Included with this lesson is an “Options for Lesson” section that lists a number of suggestions for activities to add to the lesson or substitutions for the ones already in the lesson. An optional addition to this lesson is to add another activity. For this activity, students will flip over two playing cards and multiply (red for negative, black for positive). Students collect the cards if they get the right answer, and the student with the most cards at the end wins. If some of your students have trouble multiplying or dividing, they can use a calculator.
The teacher notes page includes a paragraph with additional guidelines and things to think about as you begin to plan your lesson. This page also includes lines that you can use to add your own notes as you’re preparing for this lesson.

TIC-TAC-TOE ACTIVITY WORKSHEET
The activity worksheet asks students to use a tic-tac-toe table to reinforce the rules for multiplying or dividing integers. They will use the table included on the worksheet and will place positive signs on one diagonal and fill in the rest of the places with negative signs. They will then use the table to fill in various statements related to the lesson material.
SOLVING PROBLEMS PRACTICE WORKSHEET
For the practice worksheet, students will solve multiplication and division problems using what they learned during the lesson.
MULTIPLYING AND DIVIDING INTEGERS HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
The homework assignment asks students to fill in the tic tac toe board and answer question about it. They will also solve 12 multiplication and division problems.
Worksheet Answer Keys
This lesson plan includes answer keys for the activity worksheet, the practice worksheet, and the homework assignment. If you choose to administer the lesson pages to your students via PDF, you will need to save a new file that omits these pages. Otherwise, you can simply print out the applicable pages and keep these as reference for yourself when grading assignments.
