This lesson will help support students in their conceptual understanding of how to utilize a number line to add integers while using technology.
Students will use a vinyl cutter, Scratch program, and Makey Makey to create a learning tool for themselves to support their understanding of how to add integers using a number line. Teachers can use problem sets of their choosing to supplement this learning tool.
Students will learn, understand, and know how to prepare and use the Roland Vinyl Cutter to create remote control components. Students will utilize a pre-made template for their own individual remote control.
Preparing the Roland Vinyl Cutter
Using the Cut Studio Software
Students will learn and apply coding to maneuver their remote control using the Scratch Program.
Preparing your Scratch Project
Writing your Scratch Code
Students will use the Makey Makey kit along with the Scratch Program and knowledge of coding to build their remote control in order to move their icon along the number line.
Set Up Physical Remote
