**Definition**

Integers are whole numbers that describe opposite ideas in mathematics. Integers can either be negative(-), positive(+) or zero. The integer zero is neutral. It is neither positive nor negative, but is an integer. Integers can be represented on a number line, which can help us understand the valve of the integer. Watch Integers Videos to learn more.

**Positive Integers**

Are to the right of zero. Are valued greater than zero. Express ideas of up, a gain or a profit. The sign for a positive integer is (+), however the sign is not always needed. Meaning +3 is the same value as 3.

**Negative Integers**

Are to the left of zero . Are valued less than zero. Express ideas of down or a lose. The sign for a negative integer is (-). This sign is always needed.

**Opposite Integers**

Opposite integers always have a “net worth” of 0. This is called the ZERO PRINCIPAL. Opposite integer have the same “absolute value”, meaning the distance from the points on a number line to zero is the same.This can be referred to as the integers magnitude.

**Movement on a Number Line Magnitude and Direction**

Every integer represents a magnitude and a direction. The integer +3 describes a movement of 3 units in a positive direction.(right) . The sign (+) tells you the direction. The number (3) indicates how far to move or the MAGNIUDE( a move ment of 3 units).
