COMPARING AND ORDERING INTEGERS: -10 -9 -8 -7 -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 When comparing integers: 1. If one integer is positive (+5) and the other integer is negative (-6) the positive integer is always larger. 2. When both integers are negative (-4) and (-3), the integer closer to 0 is the larger integer. 3. When both integers are positive (+4) and (+8), the integer farther away from 0 is the larger integer. Opposite Integers: 1. Two integers that are an equal distance away from 0. i.e., (-5) and (+5) are opposite integers – they create a zero pair. 2. The sum of any two opposite integers is always 0. Using integer Tiles when adding: (+3) + (+2) =
