Mathalicious: Downside Up

Is there an upside to having a bad day?

From TV ads to social media, we’re constantly told that if we’re not always happy, we must be doing something wrong.

In this lesson, students use positive integers, negative integers, and absolute value to describe the emotions of a day and discuss the important role that different emotions play in our lives.
