### 1. What are Integers? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, we will learn about integers - what they are and what distinguishes them from other types of numbers. We'll also take a look at a few examples of things that can or cannot be measured with integers.

### 2. What is a Positive Integer? - Definition & Examples

We use positive integers in our everyday lives. We see them everywhere in the world around us. Learn what positive integers are and what you can do with them.

### 3. Negative Integers: Definition, Rules & Examples

This lesson will be covering the world of negative integers. What is a negative integer? How do they work? Also, we will be looking at real world examples.

### 4. Consecutive Integers: Definition & Formula

This lesson defines consecutive integers and gives fun examples of consecutive numbers in use. You will also learn the formulas used to compute consecutive integers.

### 5. Adding Integers: Rules & Examples

In this lesson, we will learn about adding integers or signed numbers. Using the number line and idea of absolute value, we will see that the rules used to add them are simply an extension of the rules of basic arithmetic.

### 6. Subtracting Integers: Rules & Examples

In this lesson, we will cover definitions, rules, and examples for subtracting integers. We'll also provide some helpful tips for dealing with tricky math problems.

### 7. Multiplying Integers: Rules & Examples

In this lesson, we will discuss what numbers are included in the integers and how to multiply them. We will deal with 1-, 2-, and 3-digit numbers as well as negatives and positives. There are some definitions included as well as a quiz at the end.

### 8. Dividing Integers: Rules & Terminology

In this lesson, we will learn how to divide integers or signed numbers. Determining the correct sign of the answer is a very simple but important step in these calculations. We will also learn the role of zero in division of integers.

### 9. How to Simplify Expressions with Integers

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to simplify any integer expression by following the order of operations. Learn what to watch for and in what order to do your operations.
