A few years ago I wrote a set of notes for students and put them on my website.The notes were supposed to be written in a “student-friendly” way, and different to notes students might find in textbooks or elsewhere on the internet.I have converted the notes to PowerPoint slides so you can download them, adapt them if needed, use them in revision lessons or perhaps give your students a set to take home with them to help them prepare for exams.The chances are there will be a few mistakes here and there,so if you spot any please email me & I will correct them.

Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.
Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

This is a nice concise review of the number system.

Thank you for these excellent revision aids, wish I'd have found them a couple of months ago but hey, I'll be definitely using them nex t time round! I really like the tone of them, and I will be definitely using your idea of blanking bits out and getting the kids to come and fill in the blanks. Fab, thanks so much x
