Integer inquiry in maths

Integer inquiry in maths

Today in maths we were looking at negative and positive numbers. Our Learning Intentions were, to use the term integers to describe positive and negative numbers and 0,to recognise negative whole numbers and place them on a number line in relation to zero and investigate negative whole numbers and patterns created on a calculator.

To begin our lesson we researched the coldest and hottest places on the earth. I found Death Valley California is 56 degrees celsius, Antarctica -89 degrees celsius, United States of America is -62 degrees celsius and Australia can be up to 47 degrees celsius.

We got into pairs and were given a thermometer. We first measured the temperature of our class room which at the time was 25 degrees celsius, and underneath our armpits were 37 degrees celsius (the healthy body temperature).

We then were given cups of different liquids, hot water was 75 degrees celsius, ice in a cup was -1 degrees celsius and tap water was 25 degrees celsius. We were then given the opportunity to put our thermometers in other places where we thought the temperatures would vary.
