Chapter 2 Lesson 2 – Adding Real Numbers

OK, welcome to lesson 2 it’s about positive and negative numbers and it’s an extra important lesson because so many students are weak in this area- adding  real numbers.  The concepts are not difficult however you need to go slow and practice problems until you can answer each one correctly with little effort.  Also do not skip this section if you are struggling in it – do whatever it takes to master adding real numbers as you will need this skill to understand future  material.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• the steps to add to negative numbers
• the steps to add to positive numbers
• the steps to add a positive number with a negative number and how we determine if the answer is postive or negative

If you think you can or can’t either way your right- thoughts become actions so watch negative thoughts they have destructive power!

Nice work, you finished lesson 2!
You should be able to:

* add two negative numbers

* add two positive numbers

* add a positive and negative numbers.

Now that you know how to add positive and negative numbers subtracting them will be easy- lets start the next lesson.

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
