# Unit 1: Rational Numbers

## Overview

Ever wondered how to teach rational numbers in an engaging way to your 7th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about comparing and ordering integers and absolute values. Later on, they will build on this to learn about adding and subtracting integers. Lastly, they will learn about converting between fractions, decimals, and percents.

Each lesson helps students master the unit through artistic, interactive guided notes, check for understanding, and culminates with a real-life example that explores how rational numbers are used in everyday situations.

It's an exciting way to teach rational numbers while comprehensively meeting standards.
