Number Line Moves Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is centered around the use of a number line to understand and work with integers. It provides a series of statements that describe a numerical relationship, such as being a certain number less than or more than a given integer. For each statement, a number line is provided, and students are tasked with identifying and writing down the integer that corresponds to the description. For example, if a statement says “3 more than 5”, students must find the point on the number line that is three units to the right of 5 and write down that integer.

The worksheet is designed to teach students how to navigate a number line and understand the concepts of addition and subtraction with integers. It reinforces the idea that moving to the right on a number line represents an increase (addition) and moving to the left signifies a decrease (subtraction). Through this exercise, students learn to visualize and solve simple integer problems, which is a foundational skill in mathematics. The activity also helps in building number sense and enhances their ability to translate verbal descriptions into numerical expressions.
