A set of true/false questions dealing with operations on integers.

These are great questions. I might try them out in elementary algebra as well as pre-algebra. I think students sometimes avoid reading math textbooks because of comprehension difficulties. This type of exercise would help them to read, write and think logically and critically.
I like the conceptual nature of these questions. Students can't quickly apply a procedure and then move on, rather they must think in more general terms about the operations.
Putting explicit emphasis on the justification of answers when you assign the activity is necessary. Some students may not be accustomed to having to explain their reasoning in a math course.
A quick way to extend the activity: have students re-write the false questions to make them true.
These are great thought questions! I really like the idea of having the students re-write the false equations, as I want them to remember what's true, not what they just read.
