This week we will continue to learn about integer operations, specifically subtracting with integers. Last week we discovered that *subtracting an integer is the same as adding it’s opposite*, and this lead us to the **subtracting integers formula** which is:

** a – b = a + (the opposite of b)**

During the first few weeks of school we have slowly developed our conceptual understanding of integers and in the next few weeks we will learn multiplication and division of integers and we will apply these concepts to solving problems with integers.
