You can "right click" on a Mac with a single button mouse. To do so, you can do either of the following:
This tutorial aids a teacher in the following 5th-8th grade math Grade Level Expectations:
0506.2.9 Explore numbers less than 0 by extending the number line through familiar applications (e.g., temperatures below zero, owing money, measuring elevation below sea level).
0506.3.4 Solve single-step linear inequalities and graph solutions on a number line.
0506.3.6 Recognize there are many numbers between any two whole numbers on the number line.
0606.2.1 Efficiently compare and order fractions, decimals and percents; determine their approximate locations on a number line.
The numberline objects available in the resource packs of ActivInspire look a bit juvenile, so at a request I prepared an easy-to-insert image file:
Now besides this line, you can also find many fine, ready-to-use number lines here: http://www.helpingwithmath.com/resources/oth_number_lines.htm
If you are comfortable with the GIMP, I have included the XCF file (the GIMP image source) for the number line below..
Additionally, I have created a ready made flipchart with a number line for your downloading ease and pleasure.
Here is a link to the number line flipchart.
Here is a link to the number line flipchart in ZIP format.
Here is a link to the number line image (in PNG - Portable Network Graphic format). It's ready to be inserted into your favorite mathematic flipchart.
Here is a link to the number line image (in XCF - Gimp's native format, so it can be changed in the GIMP).
