Title: Order Among Chaos
Description: This lesson is designed to assist students not only in using the order of operations, but also experimenting with how grouping and ordering affects answers. In groups as teams, the students will compete while finding algebraic expressions using only the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4, as well as all operations including exponents and grouping symbols, to find a desired integer result.  To gain points, the value of each formed expression must be from the set of integers 1-25 or 1-100 depending on time constraints.  They should attempt to get an expression with each of the listed integers required.  Modeled examples are embedded in the directions slide show so the students are instructed in the process of the competition.

Title: Adding & Subtracting Integers
Digital Tool: Integer Addition & Subtraction Music Video
Digital Tool Description: This video has a catchy beat that allows the students to remember the rules of integers more effectively.  I saw my students still singing this song at the end of the year during the state test to be able to work integer operations correctly.
