# Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about how positive and negative numbers are represented on a number line.

As students present, ask questions such as:

- How did you predict where the lever would land?
- How did you know if a number was negative or positive?
- For one swing of the lever, how are the starting number and the ending number alike? How are they different?
- How did you figure out where the lever would land after two swings of the lever?
- What kind of number was the starting number? What kind of number was the ending number? Was it an integer? A rational number? Explain.
