Follow the rules set out at the top of the route maze, for example +5 and then -7.

 Use the number line to help you if you get stuck.

Start at each number in the left-hand column. Work your way across the route by following the rules in the top bar, for example +5 or -17.

LI to be able to use negative numbers in a real life situation


Follow the transactions of the Okoye family below. They will link with a date and payment on the transaction table at the bottom of the page. If the Okoye family have paid somebody else, this is a payment out so should be included in the ‘paid out’ column. If they receive money, it should be added to the ‘paid in’ column for that date. The calculation box is for you to show how that has affected their total amount of money with each transaction. This will leave the Okoye family with a balance – a total amount of money. Record this each time there is a transaction.
