```							Accentuate the Negative

Welcome to the World of Integers!
What I           What I           What I
KNOW          THINK I KNOW      LEARNED
Essential Questions:
What are integers and what are their
purpose?
When you subtract two positive
numbers (numbers larger than
zero), it is possible to get an
answer of zero. Zero is
neither positive nor a negative
number.
Integers are a group of numbers that
include positive numbers,
negative numbers and zero.
Integers have no upper bound or
lower bound which means that
range from negative infinity to
positive infinity.
Negative integers are numbers
that are less than zero. Positive
integers are numbers that are
greater than zero.
Real World Examples
Sports – Gain and lose yards   Money – deposit and
in a football game             withdraw money

Weather – Above and below      Geography – Above and
zero                           below sea level
The number line is a line labeled with
the integers. Numbers to the right
of zero are positive , and numbers to
the left of zero are negative.
Number Opposites
Name the opposites.

Now let’s try a few numbers.
A number’s distance
from zero
ABSOLUTE
VALUE
A number’s DISTANCE from zero…
The symbol for absolute value is | |.
|6| = 6
|-5| = 5
|0| = 0

On your own paper, answer the following questions:
Let’s practice what we have learned!

Order each group from Least to Greatest.
1) 17, -24, -16, -8, 7, 2, 23
2) -7, -5, 2, -1, 4, 6, -10, 0
Write the opposite and absolute value.
1)   7
2)   -25
3)   106
4)   -241
Let’s practice what we have
learned!
Complete the statement with <,>, or =.

1. -6 ___ 4         2. -2 ___-4

3. 0 ___ -5         4. -24 ___-28
*Tellme three number types that
make up integers.
