# Number Line Resources

Posted on December 22, 2020

This is to go with my almost done video about how good it is to use number lines throughout curriculum, and how to make them with Powerpoint. I need to do a scripted version ’cause … saying “I’m going to Control V” should be “I’m going to paste with Control V” and that sort of thing… but here are some nifty little links:

Number Line Resources:

UPDATE — I found the other ones I found 🙂

https://curriculum.newvisions.org/math/course/getting-started/instructional-routine-connecting-representations/ (okay, this one doesn’t go on the main list because it takes further digging to get to number lines, but it goes here so I can hopefully find it if I want it with the connecting representations tag.

https://wcln.ca/mod/page/view.php?id=28907     … resources have creative commons license – CC BY NC SA 4.0  .. Lesson 13 and 14 are examples of using this for ALGEBRA.

… and *this one* that’s a good overall resource about connecting representations but including number lines in many contexts. http://www.wismath.org/resources/Pictures/Session%20136.pdf

Basic number line activity:

Human Number Line” activity (Content standard K.CC.A.2)  — (face to face learning) https://tasks.illustrativemathematics.org/content-standards/tasks/401

Examples of more advanced number line activities:

https://www.geogebra.org/m/eqbxycvf#material/b4zkmgqc   Interpreting negative numbers – corresponds to Illustrative Math lesson 7.5.1

Operations on the number line (Content Standard 7.NS.A.1)   from Illustrative Mathematics highly conceptual including negative numbers.  https://tasks.illustrativemathematics.org/content-standards/tasks/46

Connecting representations  This includes an exercise in connecting representations with equations and number lines.   Students match equations (e.g. 5x=15) with their representation on a number line
