Side 1 of each Flip Chart provides graphical representation of key concepts in a concise, grade appropriate reading level for instructing students. The reverse Side 2 of each Flip Chart allows teachers or students to fill in the answers and summarize key concepts. Note: Be sure to use an appropriate dry-erase marker and to test it on a small section of the chart prior to using it. The Activity Guide included provides a black-line master of each Flip Chart which students can use to fill in before, during, or after instruction. On the reverse side of each black-line master are questions corresponding to each Flip Chart topic which can be used as further review or as a means of assessment. While the activities in the guide can be used in conjunction with the Flip Charts, they can also be used individually for review or as a form of assessment or in conjunction with any other related assignment. Learning Centers Each Flip Chart provides students with a quick illustrated view of grade-appropriate curriculum concepts. Students may use these Flip Charts in small group settings along with the corresponding activity pages contained in the guide to learn or review concepts already covered in class. Students may also use these charts as reference while playing the NewPath’s Curriculum Mastery® Games. Independent student use Students can use the hands-on Flip Charts to practice and learn independently by first studying Side 1 of the chart and then using Side 2 of the chart or the corresponding graphical activities contained in the guide to fill in the answers and assess their understanding. Reference/Teaching resource Curriculum Mastery® Charts are a great visual supplement to any curriculum or they can be used in conjunction with NewPath’s Curriculum Mastery® Games.

Algebraic Expressions Translating word phrases into algebraic expressions Evaluating algebraic expressions • An algebraic expression is a mathematical phrase consisting of variables, numbers, and operations. Solving Equations • An equation is a mathematical sentence which shows that two expressions or values are equal. • Think of an equation as a balance scale. • To evaluate an algebraic expression, replace the variable with a number • Replace m with 4 in the expression The letter m is a variable which represents an unknown number. 3 x 2m is an algebraic expression evaluate m + 5 for m = 4 m + 5 4 + 5 = 9 Operation Word Phase Algebraic Expression Addition m + 9 Subtraction m – 9 Multiplication 2m + 9 2 x m 2 • m 2m Division • A number plus 9 • The sum of m and 9 • 9 more than a number • A number increased by 9 • The difference between a number and 9 • A number minus 9 • 9 less than a number • A number decreased by 9 • 9 more than twice a number • 2 x a number • A number multiplied by 2 • The product of 2 and a number • A number divided by 9 • 9 divided by a number • The quotient of a number and 9 m 9 9 m m 9 28 = m + 16 equal sign • What number plus 16 equals 28? Solve 16 + m = 28 Solution m = 12 12 + 16 = 28 28 = 28 • Solve the equation to find the value of the variable that makes the equation true. The value of the variable is called the solution.

• Integers are a set of whole numbers and their opposites. • Positive integers are whole numbers greater than zero. • Negative integers are whole numbers less than zero. • The integer 0 is neither positive nor negative. • Integers have either a (+) positive or (–) negative sign, except zero, which has no sign. • The absolute value of an integer is the number of units from zero on a number line. • The absolute value of a number is always a positive number or zero. The symbol for absolute value is . • A number line can be used to order and compare integers. order from least to greatest • Read the numbers from left to right: • Opposite integers have the same absolute value. • A number line can be used to represent a set of integers. • The value of integers increases as you move to the right along a number line. And decreases in value as you move to the left. – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 0 – 3 and 3 are opposites – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 0 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 0 – 4 = 4 4 – 3, 0, 1, – 4, 2, 5 – 4, – 3, 0, 1, 2, 5 4 = 4 units 4 units Using Integers Integer Example – 350 + 100 – 35 – 10 350 feet below sea level 35 degrees below zero Loss of 10 yards in a football play Stock Market gain of 100 points Number Line negative integers positive integers Absolute Value Ordering Integers © C opyright NewPath Learning.

• Multiplication is repeated addition. • Multiplication with integers is commutative • Division is the inverse of multiplication • The same sign rules apply to multiplication and division of integers. – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 – 10 – 12 – 11 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 5 4 3 2 1 10 11 12 9 8 6 0 7 4 x 3 means to add 3 four times: • Similarly, the product of 4 and – 3 means to add – 3 four times: Multiplying Integers Dividing Integers (-3) (-3) (-3) (-3) 4 groups of -3 = -12 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 –3 + (–3) + (–3) + (–3) –3 x (–2) = 6 5 x (–3) = –15 –15 ÷ (–3) = 5 –5 x (–3) = 15 15 ÷ (–3) = –5 6 ÷ (–3) = –2 –3 x 4 = –4 x (3) Example Rule You multiply integers just as you do whole numbers, except that you determine the sign of the product using these rules. If the factors have different signs, the product is negative. If the factors have the same signs, the product is positive. If one factor is zero, the product is zero. – 7 x 4 = – 28 – 4 x 0 = 0 – 8 x – 9 = 72 6 x 2 = 12 5 x – 3 = – 15 Example Rule • You cannot divide an integer by 0. If the dividend and divisor have different signs, the quotient is negative. If the dividend and divisor have the same signs, the quotient is positive. Zero divided by any integer equals 0. – 12 ÷ 4 = – 3 32 ÷ 4 = 8 15 ÷ (– 3) = – 5 – 21 ÷ (– 3) = 7 0 9 = 0 0 = 0 – 8 same signs product is positive different signs quotient is negative
