Abstract: 
A common area of difficulty and frustration for low achieving students is the operations involving negative numbers. The main objective of our innovations in this area with two classes of Year 7 low achieving students was to develop positive feelings towards mathematics, in particular of an appreciation for the 'reasonableness' and clear visualisation of the negative numbers 'in action'.
