Visual notetaking is just one way to make integers fun. |

Who says that teaching integers has to be well let's say, dull? The next time you teach students how to add, subtract, multiply, or divide integers, try these ideas. Enliven the topic with negative and positive integers with these fun tips.

**Add Some Artwork**

Colored pencils and crayons hold power. As students take notes, ask them to draw and color examples of integers in real life. This helps them organize their ideas and apply information.

**Use Less Common Examples**

No one walks around and discusses integers in daily conversation. Still, the topic of integers affects our daily lives. I was recently on an elevator in Europe. I was surprised to see that negative numbers were used to describe floors that were below ground level.

Going to the basement level of a building or suddenly discovering that it in below zero outside are everyday instances when we all think about negative and positive numbers.

Do you have more examples of integers in our daily lives? Share your ideas in the comment section.
