Number line 
Show/Hide 

The number line is a line labeled with the integers in increasing order from left to right, that extends in both directions: 





Compare and Order Integers 
Show/Hide 

We can compare different integers by looking at their positions on the number line. For any two different places on the number line, the integer on the right is greater than the integer on the left. Ex. Order 3, 5, 3, 1, 5 





Absolute Value of an Integer 
Show/Hide 

The number of units a number is from zero on the number line. 





Additive inverse 
Show/Hide 

one of a pair of numbers whose sum is zero; the additive inverse of 5 is +5 





Adding integers of the same sign 
Show/Hide 

When adding integers of the same sign, we add their absolute values, and give the result the same sign. 





Adding integers of the opposite signs 
Show/Hide 

When adding integers of the opposite signs, we take their absolute values, subtract the smaller from the larger, and give the result the sign of the integer with the larger absolute value 





Subtracting Integers 
Show/Hide 

'Subtracting an integer is the same as adding its opposite. 





Rules 
Show/Hide 

The sum of two positive integers is a positive integer. 

The sum of two negative integers is a negative integer. 

The sum of any integer and its opposite is equal to zero 

One positive and one negative added together cancel each other out.
