**Addition / Adding Integers by Using a Number Line**

Using a number line is one way to think about what we are doing when adding / subtracting integers. It provides a nice visual representation of what we are doing.

Example:

Use a number line to add the following: 2 + (-6)**Adding Integers (using the number line)**

Example:

3 + 5, 3 + (-5), -6 + 2**Adding integers using the number line**

Example:

-2 + (-4), -7 + 4, 2 + 3**Using the Number Line to add integers**

Example:

-2 + (-3), 2 + 3, -2 + 3, 2 + (-3), -10 + 12, 2 + (-8), -5 + (-3), 2 + 3**Adding Integers using the number line and zero pairs**

Example:

-5 + 3, 3 + (-6), -2 + (-4)
