  1. 1. Integers<br />
  2. 2. Definitions or Terms You Need to Know<br />The number line goes on forever in both directions. This is indicated by arrows.<br />Whole numbers greater than zero are called positive integers. These numbers are to the right of zero on the number line. <br />Whole numbers less than zero are called negative integers. These numbers are to the left of zero on the number line. <br />What I Know<br />Mrs. Glosser's Math Goodies 1998.<br />
  3. 3. The integer zero is neutral. It is neither positive nor negative. <br />The sign of an integer is either positive (+) or negative (-), except zero, which has no sign. <br />Two integers are opposites if they are each the same distance away from zero, but on opposite sides of the number line. One will have a positive sign, the other a negative sign. In the number line above, +3 and -3 are labeled as opposites.  ( Glosser, 1998)<br />

  5. 5. Using a Number Line<br />When adding one or more numbers you can use a number line. Watch the following videos for a quick peekNumber Line:<br />Addition :<br />Subtraction:<br />
  6. 6. Adding Negative Integers <br /><ul><li> Rule: The sum of two positive integers is a positive integer.</li></ul>Example 2: Find the sum of each pair of integers.<br />Do not confuse the sign of the integer with the operation being performed. Remember that: +29 + +16 = +45 is read as positive 29 plus positive 16 equals positive 45.<br />Rule: The sum of two negative integers is a negative integer.<br />Example 1: Find the sum of each pair<br />of integers. You complete 2 and 3.<br /> Do not confuse the sign of the integer with<br /> the operation being performed. Remember <br />that: -2 + -9 = -11 is read as negative 2 plus <br />negative 9 equals negative 11.<br /> Rules of Integer Addition<br />
  7. 7. Your Turn<br /> Select the link below for a quick practice to challenge your skills of adding and subtracting Integers. You may use a separate sheet of paper to use a number line if desired.<br /><br />Duncan-Carr (2001)<br />
  8. 8. Try out a Game<br />Deep Sea DuelOkta challenges you to a duel! That crazy octopus wants to play you in a game where the first person to choose cards with a specified sum wins. You can choose how many cards, what types of numbers, and Okta's level of strategy. (NCTM 2011)<br /><br />
  9. 9. Integers with Two Color Counters<br />The link below will guide you through a short tutorial for using two color counters. It will also review how perform the method of using zero pairs.<br /><br />
