Flashcard Content Overview

It is not uncommon for someone who feels very confident with their addition skills to get a bit discouraged when negative numbers become part of the problem. Whether you add or subtract is no longer determined by the operation but by the signs of the numbers in the expression. Understanding the rules for adding integers will help you determine the appropriate steps to reach a solution. You will find several examples of equations that fall under each of the two rules. Absolute value is a key component to understanding integer addition so you will also find a few problems on this topic as well.

Studying with Flashcards

There is an infinite amount of integer addition problems. Therefore, do not approach the example problems in this flashcard set as ones your need to memorize. Focus on the integer addition rules and how they apply to each example in the set. If the signs of the integers being added are the same, you will take a different set of steps then if the signs of the integers are different. Identify which is the case for each example then approach the steps the rules lay out for you systematically. This way, you will be able to take what you have learned and apply it to any integer addition problem that comes your way.
