This is a great addition / subtraction review shown using a number line, which helps explain how to add and subtract numbers, especially when the numbers are negative. This is a very good tutorial for learning about or reviewing addition and subtraction of integers. As the lesson goes on, more and more complicated expressions are shown and order of operations is used to simplify the expressions. Finally, word statements are written from mathematical expressions.
