### What is an Integer?

Whole numbers greater than zero are called positive integers.

Whole numbers less than zero are called negative integers.

Each negative integer is the mirror image of a positive integer with respect to the 0 mark.

The integer 0 is neither positive nor negative. Negative integers are all less than any positive integer

**Exploring Integers for Grade 6**

What are integers and their applications?

**Examples of Integers in real-world applications**

1) Write an integer appropriate to each situation.

a) Daniel owes $23

b) Mary earned $250

c) The temperature in the freezer is 18 degrees Celsius below zero.

2) Order these numbers from least to greatest −2, 0 −4, 4

**Defines integers and explains how to compare and order them**

**Introduction to Integers**

This video introduces integers, compares integers using inequality symbols, defines absolute value, and determine opposites of integers.

We can use the inequality notation to compare integers

a < b is read "a is less than b"

a > b is read "a is greater than b"

If you plot two numbers on the number line. The larger number is always to the right and the smaller number is to the left.

Opposites are two numbers that are the same distance from zero.
