One of my favorite ways to help students understand the adding of signed numbers is to play the sign wars game. Say you are adding -3 + 4 for a basic example. You put 3 negative signs on one side of a line and 4 positives on the other side of the line and say they will battle one negative cancels out one positive and what you have left is your answer...1 positive so the answer is 1.
