5 What is an integer? We measure temperature in degrees Celsius. The highest temperature in Prince George, BC, on April 27, 2004 was 12 o C. 12 is a positive number. 12 o C is the difference between the temperature of the air and the temperature at which water freezes, 0 o C. We may not be able to use a positive number to express a difference. For example, the temperature inside a freezer is 4 0 C less than the freezing point of water. We represent this difference as -4 0 C C is a negative number. We say negative 4.) A number with no fractional part. Includes the counting numbers {1,2,3,…}, zero {0}, and the negative of the counting numbers {-1, -2, -3, …} You can write them down like this: {…, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, …}

6 Use a positive or negative number to represent each situation. ~eight degrees above zero ~ten degrees below zero ~parking three levels below ground ~two points ahead in a game ~a loss of sixteen dollars ~taking four steps backward Express each change as an integer regarding stock prices on the Toronto Stock Exchange: The value of Apple Computers increased $2.00 Palm Tech dropped from $25.00 to MDS started the day at $13.00 and ended the day at $12.00 Steve bought Global stock at $10.00 and sold it for $15.00 Minds On: How can an integer be used to show the relationship between two prices of a stock? Explain.

7 Minds On: The floors in the elevator at the Integer hotel are numbered from -3 to +7, with the street level lobby represented by L instead of zero. State which floor the elevator stops at after each of the following moves.

8 Hello my name is Jeeves, welcome to my elevator. The person on my left is not permitted to be at this hotel, please phone security immediately!

9 Positive and negative whole numbers are called integers. We put a + in front of a number to indicate it is a positive inte ge r. We put a – in front of a number to indicate it is a negative integer. We can show integers on a number line. The number line may be vertical, like a thermometer. A number line may be horizontal Opposite integers are the same distance from 0 but are on the opposite sides of 0. For example, +2 and - 2 are opposite integers. They are the same distance from 0 and are on the opposite sides of 0.
