Lesson objective: Solve problems using positive and negative numbers in real life situations.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of integers to a real-life situation. Students are asked to determine player's final score in a game using a number line.

Key Concept students will use:

• The number line can show both distance and direction; the sets of positive and negative numbers exist in opposite directions from 0.
