Read the following

story about the TV weatherperson and identify

as many places as possible that the weatherperson could

use addition or subtraction of integers to answer her

questions. Write and solve the number sentences she

could use.

Ms. Cloudcover, the TV weatherperson, noted that Sunday’s

temperature was 12 much warmer than the -7 on Friday

and the -2 on Saturday. She remembered that Thursday’s

temperature was 0 and checked to see how far Saturday’s temperature

had fallen from Thursday’s temperature. She made a

note to report the average temperature for the 3-day weekend

and the temperature change from Friday to Saturday and from

Saturday to Sunday. Then she began work on a report about

how the high temperatures for each day of the past week had

been over or under the normal high temperature for that day.

She wrote, Sun:-8 Mon:-5 Tues:-2 Wed:6 Thurs:3

Fri: -4 Sat: 9 She wondered whether the net effect of

the week was more or less than normal. Before she left for the

day, she noted that today’s low temperature was 9 and figured

the difference between it and the record low of -16 for

today’s date.

To get you started:

Sunday’s temperature was 12 much warmer than the -7 on Friday

**12 + (-7) = +5**

12 much warmer than the . . . -2 on Saturday

**12 + (-2) = +10**

Continue the same way.

I have a question... There is not a 5 degree differnce between 12 degrees and -7 degrees. So, wouldn't you write it 12 - (-7) = 19 degress? I am working on the same problem and trying to figure it out. I am now more confused then ever. Please no offence to Ms. Sue. I am just wondering. :)
