Level 6 of the WorkKeys Applied Mathematics assessment requires learners to solve complicated problems. These videos and worksheets are designed to help learners apply mathematical reasoning, critical thinking, and problem-solving techniques to work-related problems.

These resources are part of KET’s Applied Mathematics: Resources for WorkKeys® and GED® Preparation collection.

Providing the opportunity to apply knowledge about positive and negative integers by narrating the clip. Students can describe how integers are represented on a number line as they relate to temperature. An *I <3 Math* clip with no audio.

Demonstrating the Commutative Property of Addition with a number line in 10 seconds with InstaCram from the *Math Club*.

Explore numerical opposites by considering the trajectory of a hot air balloon as it rises and falls in this video from MPT. In the accompanying classroom activity, students watch the video and then play a game in which they move a button along a number line in positive and negative directions. They find the total amount that the button travels in each direction in order to end up where it started. To get the most from the lesson, students should have some experience finding the distance between positive and negative integers on a number line. For a longer self-paced student tutorial using this media, see "Opposite Quantities and Zero Pairs" on *Thinkport* from Maryland Public Television.

Here are a few word problems that ask us to apply our new absolute value knowledge.

When we compare numbers we use the concepts of greater than (>), less than (

Let's mix a little algebra into our discussion of absolute value. If we are looking for the |x|, if we know what x equals, we can do it.
