The Numbers in Maths Class

Today in Maths class, the students of 1st ESO have analysed the difference between integers and whole numbers. We agreed that whole numbers must be above 0 but integers can be both positive and negative numbers. We studied a number line of both positive and negative numbers and compared integers with whole numbers.

The students have made groups of 4 pupils around each PC and then they have practised with this link:


They have completed all the questions and at the same time they have elaborated a vocabulary list with all the words related to the topic:

Subject, Maths, integers, add, substract, whole numbers, positive, negative, plus, minus…..

Finally, we have taken a look to this link where we can find questions about the subject:


Whole Numbers
{ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... }
0, 27, 398, 2345
Counting Numbers
{ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... }
1, 18, 27, 2061
{ ... -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, ... }
-15, 0, 27, 1102

"Today's Maths class was to my surprise very funny and entertaining. We used the computers to play on a website, on which there were questions about integer numbers in English. I think it was a more fun way of practising and learn, because nowadays we use technology daily. I really liked it because it was different and to be honest time passed very quickly, at least for me."

"We did Maths in a website of the integer numbers. Then we created a dictionary with the words that we had learned with the website".
