The lesson below is still images taken from the fully animated PowerPoint I created that is available in my Teachers Pay Teachers store page. If the PowerPoint is not one of my freebies, you may also head over to my YouTube channel to see the slideshow fully animated and can pause as needed to be sure you grasp each concept before moving forward (each lesson will always be free there!).

This lesson will introduce the idea of integers (our group of Positive and Negative whole numbers). Each slide will go through how to recognize integers as well as their locations on the number line. We then transition into what it means for a number to be negative and how to find the absolute value of any number.

So without further ado, read through the slides below to get a feel for what integers are, how they work, and how to go about familiarizing yourself with their locations in respect to one another!

Phew, that’s a lot to take in. Once you’ve gone over this and found some practice problems to cement the idea in your head what integers are, you may move on to the next lesson below!
