Innovation Title : Developing conceptual understanding: Activity to learn positive and negative numbers

Description - To develop an intuitive understanding of the number line amongst students, make them learn it through standing and moving on a physical number line.    1. Draw a number line in the lobby. 2. Ensure that the appropriate signs indicating positive and negative numbers are written on the line. 3. Explain the concept of negative and positive numbers. 4. Teach students about the addition of these numbers. 5. Make students practice by standing on the number line and moving in the right direction to get the answer. 6. Ensure that each student gets an opportunity to practice by moving on the number line.   Learning through activities helps make abstract mathematical concepts more concrete the students’ minds and also works towards reducing their phobia for the subject.
